Neymar agent: 'Scolari is repulsive'

Neymar’s agent called Brazil Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari “arrogant, repulsive, conceited and ridiculous.”

The representative vented his fury on Twitter after last night’s historic 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat to Germany.

Neymar was out injured with a fractured vertebra, but agent Wagner Ribeiro – who also represents PSG midfielder Lucas Moura – put the blame solely on Scolari.

He listed ‘Six requirements to be Brazil Coach’ and bitterly tore the tactician’s career apart.

“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’ the relegation.

“Six – being an old jerk, arrogant, repulsive, conceited and ridiculous,” concluded Wagner Ribeiro.

Scolari confessed after their 7-1 defeat that it was “the worst day of my life.”
