Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is returning to Chelsea.

Scolari will set foot inside Stamford Bridge again but it won’t be to replace interim boss, Rafael Benitez.

Scolari will lead his Brazil side out in an international friendly against Russia, managed by ex-England boss Fabio Capello.

He said: "Going to London is a great joy. It will be an opportunity to thank the Chelsea's fans for the affection and the great interaction I had with them.

"The game against Russia will be very important in order to prepare Brazil's national team for the Confederations Cup in 2013 and the World Cup in 2014. Russia is a strong opponent and it is traditionally hard to play against them."
