Scolari to City link cools

Luiz Felipe Scolari's spokesman has distanced the Brazilian from reports linking the former Chelsea boss with the managerial post at Manchester City. Chelsea parted company with Scolari last week after the ex-Brazil and Portugal boss had only been in the Stamford Bridge hot-seat for seven months. Almost immediately, speculation linked the veteran coach with a switch to Eastlands where current boss Mark Hughes is struggling to lift City out of mid-table mediocrity. However, Acaz Fellegger, Scolari's spokesman, told The Guardian: "There is no contact with Manchester City. "Scolari has no intention of taking on another job during this season. "He has no intention of doing anything before the end of May or June. "Only after June will he decide his future. If he goes to work in another country in Europe he will move there. If he stays in England he will obviously stay there."
