Arsenal striker Jesus has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament in Qatar after coming off injured during Brazil’s defeat to Cameroon on Friday.
The striker has injured his knee and he is currently undergoing further tests to learn the full extent of the problem amid reports he faces three months out.
It was reported that Jesus was complaining of knee pain before the game - and had been for several weeks.
But when that was put to Tite on Sunday afternoon, he said: “Thank you very much for this question because I can’t repeat things out there that are lies.
“These are evil lies, from those who want to do bad things to others. Not at any time here in the national team did we pay the price for victory with the health of an athlete.
“So this liar who is out there…the haters, that’s what they call them, that’s what they call them, right? They keep spreading it around, so they give me the opportunity to talk. Stop spreading fake news and do something else.
“Arsenal has a great medical department. We have a great medical department. We have a personal responsibility. We have personal ethics. It would never happen like this.”
