Scolari Dismissed as Chelsea Manager

Luiz Felipe Scolari

Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed from the managerial role at Chelsea, only months after becoming manager of the London based club. On Monday, the Chelsea FC website released a statement, to reveal the dismissal of the World Cup winning coach.

After a bright start at Chelsea, taking the Premiership by storm in the first few months, matters have gone from worse to worse for Chelsea. After a set of poor results against their big four counterparts in Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United in addition to their poor showing in the league, Abramovich decided enough was enough. Chelsea’s goal-less draw at home to Hull on Saturday most certainly did not help Scolari’s case, with the supporters getting frustrated with the odd chant of “You don’t know what you’re doing!” directed at the manager.

According to the agent of Scolari, it was Abramovich who took the decision to sack the manager. Apparently, both Peter Kenyon and the full squad of players were fully behind Scolari. It will leave most of the players in shock, however, at such a crucial time in the season they will have to learn to group together and work even harder for one another.

Speculation will be heating up in the next few days with regards to the replacement of Scolari. There have been many names listed all ready, including the current manager of Russia, Hiddink, who Abramovich is said to be very keen on. Other candidates include a surprise Avram Grant, former Chelsea player Gianfranco Zola and Mark Hughes, the current manager of Manchester City.

    you obviously don’t watch much Serie A Johnny. Juventus not only has the pace and stmaina to beat Chelsea they have desire and lady-luck on their side. As of late Chelsea players look poorly motivated and I sense several key members are making ready for that next transfer window. In dismissing Real Madrid in both matches during the last round, Juventus under former Chelsea boss Ranieri should do the double against his old club also.Johnny my boy, England is up against the wall right now don’t be surprised if all 4 English sides go out this round. physically strong at this stage is going to earn your choices several key penalties. What you really need to see from Arsenal, Chelsea and ManUnited is better finishing ability and finesse and the Italians have that in spades.
