Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has cooled talk of replacing Sven Goran Eriksson at Manchester City.

"Portugal offers me everything I need," Scolari said in an interview late on Thursday with Portuguese broadcaster RTP. "I have no agreement with that club."

The Brazilian added that he respects current incumbent Eriksson, who has been told by club owner Thaksin Shinawatra his position will be reviewed after the final game of the season on Sunday.

"I like him as a person and as coach. He is a gentleman," said Scolari of the former England head coach.
