Dani Alves has warned football is failing thousands of players outside the game’s elite.

The Brazilian defender joins Luka Modric and Didier Drogba in backing FIFPro’s campaign to address issues like unpaid wages, bullying and inadequate health care.

Alves, who went unpaid at his first club in Brazil, said poor working conditions of footballers outside the world’s biggest leagues are usually overlooked.
