Robinho voices Scolari support

Manchester City's Brazilian ace Robinho has criticised Chelsea for axing manager Luiz Felipe Scolari a matter of months into his Stamford Bridge reign. Robinho, who almost joined Chelsea before signing for the Citizens, believes that Scolari should have been given more time to prove his worth with the Blues. He told the Sunday People: "I know Scolari very well and he talks a lot with the players. "I don't understand why some Chelsea players have not accepted him and that has been the key to irregular results of recent weeks. "I did not expect the sacking of Scolari, but so many unexpected things happen in English football. "Felipe is a great coach and he showed that with Brazil and Portugal. They have not given him the necessary time at Chelsea. "It is another club and I should not get too involved, but I think they have got it wrong."
