Scolari claims Chelsea post

11 Jun 2008 - 21:22:16

Chelsea have announced that Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari will take over as their new manager after this summer's European Championships.

The Blues had been linked with a number of high-profile candidates since the sacking of Avram Grant, but Brazilian Scolari has been confirmed as the new man in charge at Stamford Bridge.

A statement on the club's official website confirmed: "Chelsea Football Club is delighted to confirm that Luiz Felipe Scolari will be the club's new manager from July 1, 2008.

"Felipe has great qualities. He is one of the world's top coaches with a record of success at country and club level.

"He gets the best out of a talented squad of players and his ambitions and expectations match ours. He was the outstanding choice.

"Out of respect for his current role as head coach of the Portugal national team and to ensure minimum disruption to this work, there will be no further comment from Chelsea FC nor from Felipe about his new role until his employment with us commences."
