The fall-out from Brazil’s World Cup humbling at the hands of Germany continues with Neymar’s agent brandishing manager Phil Scolari as ‘ridiculous’.
The Barcelona striker played no part in the 7-1 semi-final defeat because of a damaged vertebra he picked up during the quarter-final defeat of Colombia, but his agent Wagner Ribeiro has taken to Twitter launch an attack on embattled Brazilian manager Scolari.
In a six-point list of critical points, Ribeiro launched a stinging tirade ahead of the 3rd/4th place play-off with the Netherlands.
“One – being Portugal coach and winning nothing."
“Two – going to Chelsea and being sacked the following day."
“Three – going to coach in Uzbekistan."
"Four – returning to Brazil, taking over a big team [Palmeiras] and getting them relegated to the second division."

“Five – leaving the club 56 days before the end of the Brasileirao [season] to 'escape' relegation.”
“Six – being an old jerk, arrogant, repulsive, conceited and ridiculous,” he added to end his rant.
