Chelsea's Lampard tells Scolari he's staying

Scolari was officially unveiled by Chelsea at Cobham's Hilton Hotel on Tuesday and immediately warned the rest of Europe that his top players were staying put.

"I met Frank Lampard yesterday and I spoke to him," said Scolari.

"I like him too much as a player and as a person.

"I asked him if he wanted to stay at Chelsea, not only for this season but for more time.

"He told me after 15 minutes that he wants to stay and he wants to play for Chelsea for many years.

"I am very happy because I think Chelsea needs Lampard and he likes Chelsea. Now it's a minimum of questions to solve it. I think Lampard is with us for more time than one year.

"Drogba is part of my plans 100%. No, 200%. I like him. Last season or two years ago I voted him one of the best players in the world. I think two or three years ago I chose John Terry. Now they are with me. I am happy.

"I spoke to Drogba because he arrived in our (training) base. He has a little problem with his knee. I spoke to him about how many times he needs normal training (but) I saw him happy."
