Neymar wasn't even able to participate in Brazil's embarrassing 7-1 defeat to Germany through injury, but it didn't stop his agent, Wagner Ribeiro, from blasting boss Luiz Felipe Scolari in the aftermath. 

In a tweet, translated by Eurosport, Ribeiro slammed Scolari, who won't quit his post, with six "requirements" for being Brazil's coach.

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. 

Fighting words from Ribeiro, indeed. The original tweet, which still exists (in Portuguese):
