Brazil soccer coach Tite has criticized Lionel Messi for his complaints against the Copa América refereeing.

Brazil beat Messi's Argentina in the semifinals and clinched the title with a 3‑1 win over Peru.

Tite says Messi has to have more respect and needs to accept when he loses. Tite had praised the Argentine playmaker ahead of the semifinals.

Messi boycotted the medal ceremony after Argentina beat Chile in the third‑place game.

He said he was protesting against the refereeing and "corruption" in the Copa América.
