Scolari admits steaming into Chelsea players in Moscow

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari admits he stunned his players after their shootout defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow last week.

"Lokomotiv gave us one big lesson," Scolari admitted. "They had two shots in the second-half and scored a goal. We had three chances in front of goal and we didn't kill the opposing team. They hit us. This is what I said to the players - you have one or two chances and if you don't kill the opposition in the Premier League they will kill us.

"If you ask players around the world about me they say 'I like Scolari because he is a true man, he speaks honestly in front of you and he's very good as a person'.

"I will try to remain the same way until my last day in Chelsea. If I need to say something to a player, I will say it to his face. I had a meeting with the players and I said some things about the Lokomotiv game which until now they have not heard."
