Chelsea defender David Luiz believes Luiz Felipe Scolari would love to lead Brazil to victory at Stamford Bridge this week.

A Selecao take on Russia in a friendly at the Southwest London venue on Monday night and Luiz is adamant that his national team boss would love to succeed at his old stomping ground.

"Mr Scolari is an excellent professional. He has been a coach in many clubs all over the world and also national teams,” he said of the former Chelsea manager.

"I'm sure he is happy to come back here because regardless of what happened here he has very good memories.

"He has got history here as well so I believe what he wants here is to put the cherry on the top of the cake by winning the game at the stadium where he was manager.

"When somebody doesn't do well everybody outside always talks about the negatives not positives.

"What I have heard, having asked around, is Scolari had a great time, regardless of what happened."
