Copa America: Coach got heavy for criticizing the organization of the tournament, fined lakhs of rupees

Sao Paulo. One coach was overwhelmed to condemn the organization of Copa America. The coach has been fined lakhs of rupees for criticizing. The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) has fined Brazilian coach Tite for five thousand dollars or about 3.5 lakh rupees for condemning the Copa America event. A week before this, a Bolivia player was banned for criticizing the organization of the tournament amid the Corona epidemic.

Tite said in a press conference on June 12 that in a strange way, the decision has been taken to hold the Copa America in Brazil. The tournament was originally to be held in Colombia and Argentina, but after both of them withdrew, the host was handed over to Brazil at the last moment. CONMEBOL said Tite could face a new punishment if he condemned the organizers again.
