Brazil defender Dante wants to become German
MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich defender Dante doubts he will play for Brazil again and says he wants to become a German.
Dante tells Sport-Bild magazine he would like to stay in Germany after his career ends, and “that would be easier with a German passport.”
Dante was in the Brazil lineup that was humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the World Cup semifinals. He has 13 caps.
The 30-year-old defender says new Brazil coach Carlos Dunga has to change things, and “I don’t necessarily think I’ll be back in the national team.”
Dante has played in Germany since 2009, and is contracted to Bayern to 2017.
