Scolari scoffs at Chelsea boss Mourinho's Neymar blast

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has hit back at Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho over criticism of Neymar's diving.

Mourinho named and shamed the Barcelona star for diving after the clash with Celtic last week.

Former Blues boss Scolari claimed the comments were early mind games in case Chelsea face Barcelona later in the competition.

"Mourinho has his own interests and I think he is now playing games so he'll have an explanation if Barcelona and Chelsea face each other," he said.

"Don't get me wrong, but Neymar falls down the same as any other player. Chelsea players also fall down."
