Villa boss O'Neill backs Chelsea's Scolari appointment

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has backed Chelsea's appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari as new manager.

He said: "They were looking for something after Jose Mourinho and the sacking of Avram Grant. They were looking for a really big appointment and they have got one - he is as big as they come. There were rumours some of the players maybe perhaps might be leaving the football club, the Portuguese ones perhaps. I think he will keep the ones he wants to keep."
