SAO PAULO (AP) Right back Dani Alves says he is at peace despite the knee injury that forced him out of the World Cup in Russia.

The Brazilian said in a video published Saturday that he wants fans and teammates to take nothing but good energies from him.

”Maybe my ego is a bit hurt right now, but my soul is at peace because I always tried to do my best,” Alves said in his social media channels.

Alves injured his right knee Tuesday in the French Cup final win with Paris Saint-Germain. PSG said his anterior cruciate ligament detached. The Brazilian Football Confederation said in a statement on Friday he needs surgery.

Brazil will announce its squad Monday in Rio de Janeiro.
