After returning to Brazil, the young superstar, who had been previously palling around in Las Vegas apologized for his rant:

(Translated) “My five minutes in Brazil were enough to realize that my post / rant on Instagram had had a negative impact, giant here. What I have heard of people who received me at the airport was that I ‘overdid’ … I admit … ‘Yes, I overdid (it). (I) apologize to all who were offended. (It) is the least I can do.'”
As a result of his team’s disappointing first-round exit from the Copa, Brazil’s head coach Dunga was relieved from his duties.
