'If it was me, I would go to a place where I would feel happy as a person, as a human being,' said Tite

Brazilian football coach Tite gave guidance to Neymar to play for a club where he would feel happy as a person amid increasing rumours of the PSG player wishing to return to FC Barcelona. 

"It is about where you feel good, where you feel happy, there are several other factors," said Tite on being asked what advice he could give Neymar regarding latest rumours of leaving PSG. 

"If it was me, I would go to a place where I would feel happy as a person, as a human being, as a family. Because, from there, I will be better professionally," the Brazilian coach further added. 

Currently, Neymar is dealing with a lot of off-pitch issues. A Brazilian woman accused him of raping her at a Paris hotel last month. Neymar denied it and said that the relationship was consensual. 

Lately, Brazilian tax authorities put a freeze on dozens of his mansions and other properties amid a long-running tax dispute. 

He also suffered an ankle injury that ruled him out Copa America last week and in his absence, Brazil beat comfortably Bolivia 3-0 in the Copa America's opener and leads with three points the Group A.
