Former Brazil boss Scolari open to England job

Former Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that he is keen on the vacant England post.

Scolari, who won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, turned down an opportunity to manage the Three Lions when he was approached by the FA to succeed Sven Goran Eriksson in 2006.

However, the Guangzhou Evergrande manager is prepared to give the England job a chance this time around.

He told the Daily Mail: “I am the manager of Guangzhou and I am concentrating on my job here.

“But I know the importance of the England job in world football. I've an affection for English football and I am aware of the need for the national team to be successful.

“I understand the importance of an international manager from my time with Brazil and Portugal."
