Scolari snubs Juve interest

28 December 2009 10:42
Luiz Felipe Scolari claims he has turned down an offer from Juventus to replace under-fire coach Ciro Ferrara. Ferrara has come under intense pressure following the Turin club's patchy Serie A form and failure to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League. That has led to suggestions that Scolari - who is currently in charge of Uzbeck club Bunyodkor - could be asked to replace the rookie coach. Juve have refused to comment on reports that Ferrara is about to be replaced but former Chelsea, Portugal and Brazil coach Scolari claims that he has been approached. "Yes, I have got a proposal from Juventus, but I rejected it because I am completely satisfied with conditions at Bunyodkor," he said. "I have everything I need to be effective and work comfortably, so I will stay in Uzbekistan till my contract with Bunyodkor expires, even if I receive an interesting proposal in future."
