Chelsea Shock: Scolari Sacked

 

English Premiere League team Chelsea have announced on their Web site that "Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed as manager of Chelsea Football Club with immediate effect," following the club's fourth spot so far in the Premiere League season.

Former Portugal manager Scolari was at Chelsea for just seven months, despite signing a three-year deal with the London-based club. Chelsea is still in the running for the FA Cup and the Champions League.

Scolari's spokesperson has blamed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich for not giving Scolari the backing, and the fresh blood, he asked for. "The Chelsea squad are old. Felipe tried to rejuvenate it, but unsuccessfully."

The league hasn't finished yet. Still months left.

  Thanks, Barry  
 
the source was weird about that, and I couldn't wrap my head around Chelsea sacking their coach mid-season cause they were in fourth spot, so I assumed it was done.

Welcome to the world of Chelsea FC. You have around 7 months to garauntee them a title or silverware or you're out of the door. Soon enough any manager with even a shred of talent is going to stay well away no matter what the wage.

They don't want a manager, they want a magician.
