The quotes continued, saying that Scolari knew from his time with Ronaldo during Portugal's recent Euro 2008 campaign that the 23-year-old had not been affected by the speculation surrounding his future and "Manchester United can do nothing to hurt him".
However, Scolari denied having ever made those statements on Monday in a statement released on the Portuguese FA website.
. The statement read: "Luiz Felipe Scolari categorically denies having given an interview or having made any of the declarations printed in media concerning the future of Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Furthermore, the national team coach has not made any contact with the media since the end of the match between Portugal and Germany when he spoke about the quarter-finals of Euro 2008.
"Luiz Felipe Scolari regrets that his name is being used in connection with speculation and lies, and takes this opportunity to deny in advance any alleged declarations used by the media without their authenticity being thoroughly confirmed."
