Luiz Felipe Scolari: Has refused to rule out making a Premier League return

Currently taking in a second spell in the Brazil national side hot-seat, the experienced tactician is unlikely to have fond memories of his previous stint in England.

Appointed by Chelsea on the back of a successful period in charge of Portugal, Scolari was awarded just seven months at Stamford Bridge before being ushered through the exits.

He struggled to get to grips with life in the Premier League, with tactics and communication proving to be an issue.

Scolari, though, claims that he was undermined by player power and considers himself to have unfinished business in England.

He said: "I had a number of concerns with one or two players.

"As I am South American, I have a different way of seeing things, and certain people did not like that.

"But I don't want to focus on the negatives. It was good to work in England.

"I am thinking about coaching for three or four more years, so why won't I come back to the Premier League one day?"
