What price on Luiz Felipe Scolari becoming the next manager of Liverpool after leading his latest team to a resounding championship victory?
The former Chelsea boss maybe outside hope to step in for the beleaguered Rafa Benitez after a bruising experience at Stamford Bridge, but he has gone some way to restoring his reputation with Uzbekistan club Bunyodkor.
Big Phil's side have won the League with everyone else still having four games to play - a record - following second-place Pakhtakor could only draw with Metallurg Bekabad.
When Zico won the title with the Tashkent-based club a year ago, heused it as a springboard for a more respectable job at CSKA Moscow.
ButScolari, who has another year to run on his lucrative Bunyodkorcontract, seems content at a club where compatriot Rivaldo is stillplaying aged 39.
Meanwhile, the club this week dismissed reports that they were trying to sign Spain legend Raul from Real Madrid.
