All Brazilian legend Cafu wanted to do was show support for his compatriots who had just been unceremoniously ousted from the World Cup by Germany. 

So he was thrown out of the changing room. 

Cafu, who also captained the Selecao to their last World Cup win in 2002, went to console the gutted Brazilian players, but was met rather strangely by Brazilian football federation president Jose Maria Marin. 

Per the Mirror

Jose Maria Marin said he didn't want any strange people in the dressing room. 

I told him that I wasn't a 'strange person,' that I was just there to give the boys a hug and comfort them. 

To my surprise, I was practically thrown out.
