"--IANS/EFE"
Teresopolis (Brazil), July 12 (IANS/EFE) Brazilian football star Neymar Jr. criticised his agent Wagner Ribeiro for a verbal attack on coach Luiz Felipe Scolari after the host nation's humiliating 1-7 loss to Germany in the World Cup semi-finals.

Neymar said that Ribeiro's outburst represents his views only and he does not agree with what his manager said, reports Efe.

Ribeiro had attacked Scolari through Twitter, describing him as an old jerk, arrogant, repulsive, conceited and ridiculous.

Neymar added that sacking coaches is not always the right decision to solve problems.
