Brazil coach Tite responds to Jurgen Klopp's Fabinho comment.

Jurgen Klopp made reference to Fabinho not getting picked for matches by Brazil boss Tite.

While Liverpool are still assessing the extent of Fabinho's hamstring injury picked up against Midtjylland in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Klopp was asked by a Brazilian journalist for an update on the midfielder.

The Liverpool boss, when answering questions went on to alleged that Tite usually do not tend to select Fabinho for international matches.

Although, the German's response was prompted by the journalist saying the Reds man injury will also impact Brazil ahead of the international duty.

"I'm not sure if Tite's too worried because he plays him never so he will probably now not sit on the bench for the next three international games," Klopp said.

Fabinho was named in Brazil's squad for last month's World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru but the Liverpool man who has capped only 12 times for the Selecao wasn't handed an appearance.

When asked about Klopp's comments, Tite pointed to common ground and talked about how him and the Reds boss have the same ideas.

"Klopp and I have the same thinking and the same scale of values. The health of athletes is essential. It is human,” he told Jovempan.

"The use is secondary, just as sport is secondary when we talk about health, when we talk about people, when we talk about something that is bigger.

"We have this same idea and way of watching football."
