Scolari tells Chelsea stars: Forget footie, let's talk darts!

On his first day with the Chelsea players, Luiz Felipe Scolari wanted to talk darts and not football!

Chelsea stars have a dart board on the wall and play matches almost every day.

They also have tournaments - where skipper John Terry, Steve Sidwell and Salomon Kalou claimed the glory during last season.

It was all very new to Brazilian Scolari, who enjoyed watching a bit before promising to practise and join in.

A Chelsea source told The Sun: "The new boss seemed quite surprised when he saw the dart board.

"He said he had seen the game on TV but never had any experience of playing.

"Some of the lads explained that it was a great English tradition and the boss joked that he would have a go at home before taking them on.

"It was a great icebreaker and he seemed genuinely up for joining in."
