Mumbai: The CBF vice-president Francisco Noveletto stated that the rape allegation targeted at Brazilian football player Neymar may make him skip the upcoming Copa America.

Neymar had denied the accusations against him and had posted a video on Instagram that had later been removed. The video, which contained chats of the accusing woman with the player also included intimate pictures sent willingly.

 

However, Neymar now faces a cybercrime investigation against him by the local police. The investigation may make him withdraw from his spot on the national team ahead of the tournament he was practising for.

"He doesn't have the psychological conditions to face a Copa America and a battalion of journalists,” added Novelette.

Here is the official CBF Tweet
