Scolari won't allow Abramovich inside Chelsea dressing room

New Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari will insist on owner Roman Abramovich not being allowed in the dressing room.

The Daily Express says Scolari has already told Abramovich that he will run the playing side of things his way and will have no interference from the boardroom. Billionaire Blues owner Abramovich visited the dressing room frequently when Jose Mourinho and his successor, Avram Grant, managed the club.

A source close to Brazilian Scolari said last night: "The agreement was a clear part of the conversation between Scolari and Abramovich that preceded him signing. Scolari is the only person who goes in the dressing room. No suits and ties."
