Former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has become the new coach of Uzbek champions Bunyodkor. The club announced on Tuesday that the former World Cup-winning coach, who was sacked by the Blues in February, has agreed an 18-month contract. The 60-year-old Brazilian is looking forward to the challenge ahead. He said: "Uzbek football now creates its own success story, especially Bunyodkor with its remarkable dynamism and prospects for the past four years. "I know that I am in the right place at the right time and in the right team." Scolari succeeds fellow Brazilian Zico, who led Bunyodkor to the league and cup double and Asian Champions League semi-finals last year before quitting in December to join CSKA Moscow.
