Chelsea boss Scolari: Deco, Lampard can play together

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari insists he is planning the new season with both Deco and Frank Lampard in his midfield.

He said: "I never bought Deco thinking there is no place for Lampard. They can play together. They have different qualities.

"I don't know what has happened before. I never asked. I arrived and tried to make sure there is a good relationship between me, the players and the club. Now it is a business negotiation for Lampard and the club. I have said to everybody that I want him to stay and my job is done."
