NEYMAR hit his former agent with an adult blast as he leapt to the defense of outgoing Brazil boss Tite.
Samba Boys suffered a surprise World Cup penalty shoot-out defeat by Croatia yesterday, with Neymar failing to even score a penalty.
And although Brazil are considered favorites to win in Qatar, they are traveling home after losing in the fourth quarter-final of the last five tournaments.
Gaffer Tite announced his resignation immediately after the loss, ending his six-year tenure.
And many in Brazil have weighed in on the outgoing manager, including Neymar’s former agent Wagner Ribeiro.
He posted a brutal message online, saying: “This gentleman was never a football coach. He spent years fooling people who lost two cups.
“He just has to be the PRAYER of the alumni class.”
But this sparked an angry reaction from Neymar, 30, who had shone as the number 10 in Tite’s system.
The Paris Saint-Germain ace boomed, “Don’t talk s**t Wagner!”
Now it remains to be seen whether Neymar will continue playing for Brazil.

Last night he managed to equal Pele’s official international goal record of 77 goals.
But after that, Neymar hinted that the pain of defeat was so strong that he might not play for Brazil again.
Neymar said: “To be honest I don’t know. I think talking now is bad because of the heat of the moment. Maybe I’m not thinking straight.”
“To say this is the end would be hasty, but I don’t guarantee anything either. Let’s see what happens in the future.
“I want to take this time to think about it, to think about what I want for myself. I’m not going to close the door to play with Brazil, nor am I 100 per cent saying I’m coming back.”
“I still have to think a little bit about what’s right for me and for the national team.”
