'The first thing you here is BOOOOOOO!'

Brazil head coach Tite has responded the boos directed at his players during their opening Copa America encounter against Bolivia.

"We felt it! Young lads feel it. The coach feels it," Tite told reporters, accorinding to NY Times.

"Having been at big clubs, when you sometimes don't produce, then don't expect the fans to understand. They will boo.

"When you pass the ball along the back, from full back to central defender to goalkeeper, the first thing you hear is BOOOOOOO!

"We need to understand. If we get forward and create chances then they will applaud."
