"One - being Portugal's 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 second division. Five - leaving the club 56 days before the end of the season to escape the relegation. Six - being an old jerk, arrogant, repulsive, conceited and ridiculous," Ribeiro tweeted, referring to Scolari.

Ribeiro is also Lucas Moura's agent, whom Scolari did not pick for the World Cup.
