Why Felipe Scolari got Sacked by Chelsea in 2009?
Scolari speaking about his sack, The Sun quotes
“Chelsea had some problems with injuries, some problems in the team. I had a form of leadership that clashed with one or two players.”
“Anelka and Drogba (when asked which players). Our medical department thought that we should let Drogba go and recover in Cannes, in the middle of summer.
“I thought he should stay in London. I’d also like to go to Cannes in the middle of summer. I’d stay there for a month, two months, enjoying myself.”
Scolari claimed he wanted both Drogba and Anelka to pair up-front but lack of respect between the two caused an issue.
The 73-year-old was the fourth manager under Roman Abramovic after Claudio Ranieri, Jose Mourinho and Avram Grant.
Chelsea so far was Scolari first and last job in England. The Brazilian tactician was impressed by how fans support their own clubs rather than going for big-name clubs.
