Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari insists he's not looking for a battle with Manchester United counterpart Sir Alex Ferguson this season.

"I have met him two or three times, but I don't know his ideas, it is impossible for me to understand what he wants to do," said the Brazilian.

"He is a fantastic manager and an intelligent man, who has won many times with Manchester United.

"But all of the managers here are very good. They need to prove everyday that they are very good, if you are not one day, it's your loss.

"The managers have a big influence in England, but you need to have a good mind and forever think win, win, win."
