Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari doesn't believe he'll make a new signing to replace crocked midfielder Joe Cole.

"Even though Joe is out for the season I don't think I will buy because I follow what the club wants," he said.

"In the last five years I am the coach who puts more young players on the pitch than anyone else and without spending Chelsea's money.

"Chelsea receive money because they sell 10 players. Before me, how much does Chelsea spend? Now I sell 10 players and I think it is better for Chelsea."
