Scolari firms as Chelsea favourite
Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is firming as favourite for the Chelsea job.
The Guardian says Scolari is the preferred choice to succeed Avram Grant at Chelsea.
Scolari, who is highly regarded within Abramovich's close circle of advisers, does not intend to finalise his future until after the Euro 2008 tournament. He is keen to manage in the Premier League and Chelsea would represent an attractive alternative to joining Thaksin Shinawatra at City.
