Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has slammed AC Milan striker Ronaldo over his extortion scandal.

"This is an absurd and ridiculous situation," slammed Felipao. "Sometimes people don't like to hear the truth about themselves.

"That is why they surround themselves with people who aren't good for them and so end up doing ridiculous things.

"I know people in the football world who do this sort of thing, but at least they do them well and nobody ever finds out."

Meanwhile, Brazilian telephone company TIM have denied they tore up Ronaldo's sponsorship contract after the scandal.
