Chelsea boss Scolari big fan of Premiership managers

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari says he's a big fan of the managers working in the Premiership.

He said: "I like Arsene Wenger, I have known him for ten years. And I like Martin O'Neill. I saw some games and his procedure is very good, the way he works with the team. And I think the players like him.

"I have also heard the players talking many good words about Harry Redknapp from Portsmouth. I hear he's a good man who does good work. I have relations with Arsene and Juande Ramos, Benitez only a little because I have not played against him.

"And Sir Alex Ferguson sometimes because when I was with Portugal we talked about Cristiano, whether he was coming to the national team or not, injured or not. And they also had Nani.

"It's not just about playing against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. They are important teams but it's not only these clubs. It's also about Portsmouth, Blackburn, Wigan and all the others.

"Chelsea wants to be at a higher level than they are now. They want more, to arrive as first in the world. But for this we need not only to beat Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson, we need to finish above all the clubs. I will try to do that with the players this season."
