Dunga wants Neymar at Rio Olympics over Copa America

Reuters

Brazil coach Dunga prefers to see Neymar play at the Rio Olympics in August rather than the Copa America in June.

Brazil's staff will discuss its summer plans for the 24-year-old this week with his club Barcelona. The Catalans are "likely" to ask Neymar to feature in just one of the tournaments, according to the Associated Press.

"If I have to choose between Copa America and the Olympics, I prefer to see (Neymar) in the Olympics," Dunga told Brazilian TV channel Esporte Intertativo, as translated by the Associated Press.

Brazil's men's soccer team has never won a gold medal in the Olympics.
