Paris is a stressful, racist city; I do not like it - Dani Alves

Frank Leboeuf is not concerned about Neymar's latest injury having a negative impact on PSG's season.
Gab Marcotti looks at how PSG will be impacted by Neymar's injury he picked up playing for Brazil.

Former Paris Saint-Germain right-back Dani Alves has accused the city of Paris of being racist after leaving to join Sao Paulo in the summer.

Alves, 36, returned to Brazil to play club football for the first time in nearly 20 years when he completed a free transfer in August after two years at Parc des Princes.

Despite Alves being prepared to extend his stay with PSG, the former Barcelona, Juventus and Sevilla man told GQ in Brazil of his disgust at his experience of Parisian life and his preference...

Copa Libertadores semifinals: Boca vs. River ante raised higher; can Gremio beat Flamengo?

Any game between River Plate and Boca Juniors is always full of emotion.

Buenos Aires is bracing itself twice over for the events of Tuesday. First, heavy rain is forecast. Second, there could already be enough thunder and lightning supplied by the first leg of the Copa Libertadores semifinal between River Plate and Boca Juniors -- a half anticipated, half dreaded meeting of historic rivals.

Last year, of course, they met in the two-legged final. The whole saga proved too big, too dramatic, too intense for the city, and after fan violence outside River's stadium the...

Four sackings in 24 hours shows challenges Brazilian coaches face

Philippe Coutinho is tasked with naming his favourite player and his top games and goals after completing his move to Bayern Munich.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno says Brazil came together and proved that they were the best team at the Copa America despite Neymar's absence.

A few months ago, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp aimed some strong words at those running Brazilian football.

"The way the Brazilian clubs are doing things is definitely wrong," he said. "The coaches come in for one week, a month or two or three, with the hope that he can perform wonders. It's not possible! It's football, and in football you have to accept what you have to do. It's hard work, working together, bringing players together so that they can perform together. That needs time. If you don't...

Dani Alves' Brazil homecoming more difficult than expected

Dani Alves recalls what it's like to play for Pep Guardiola and reminisces on his time playing alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar.
PSG's Dani Alves opens up about his singing career aspirations and how racism has impacted football.
With Philippe Coutinho still struggling to adjust to life at Barcelona, compatriot Dani Alves feels says he needs to change his mentality if he wants to succeed.

The FIFA FIFPro Men's World XI, announced at Monday night's The Best awards, was whittled down from a shortlist of over 50 -- which included only one player based in South America. And the name of Dani Alves did not figure because of anything he has done since recently joining Sao Paulo. It was a consequence of his deeds in the last European season with Paris Saint-Germain and -- probably at least as important -- his outstanding displays for the Brazil team in the Copa America, where he was chosen...

Brazilian power Flamengo on road back to greatness with Jorge Jesus

Jorge Jesus has Flamengo dreaming of titles again.

The Brazilian Championship reached the half way stage at the weekend -- and at the end of the most significant match of the round, a giant crowd in Rio's Maracana stadium were chanting "mister, mister."

This was not a bizarre homage to an obscure 1980s band from the United States. It was a tribute to a coach who has crossed the Atlantic to ignite the best and most promising season Brazil has enjoyed for some time.

During the mid-year pause for the Copa America, Flamengo of Rio appointed Portuguese...
