Scolari Dismissed as Chelsea Manager
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.
