Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari insists he has no grudge against Robinho after the Brazilian chose to join Manchester City last week.

"The board offered to pay what they thought was correct for the club," said Scolari.

"It's not because we have money or don't have money. It was a technical decision on a player.

"The board make decisions about money. I am the coach and manager, but I have zero influence on money. That's a job for Peter Kenyon, not for me. My job is on the pitch."
