Carlo Ancelotti has criticised Brazil's decision to exclude Cafu, Dida and Kaka.
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has criticised Brazilian coach Carlos Alberto Parreira for saying the Italian club's Brazilian players will never represent their country again.
Milan refused to free Cafu, Dida and Kaka to play in Brazil's friendly with Haiti, which the world champions won 6-0.
Bayern Munich also stopped Ze Roberto and Lucio from playing, and consequently all five players have been snubbed for all future internationals by Parreira.
Ancelotti commented on the decision: "It seems to me he has been wrong. It has been an unreasonable choice and being angry with players is a nonsense.
"Milan cleared the decision which has been taken by the club and not by the players, and the choice has been according to a rule the Brazilian federation knows very well."
Arsene Wenger also criticised Parreira for playing the Arsenal pair of Edu and Gilberto in the much maligned friendly.
