Luiz Felipe Scolari has emphasised the fact that he could return to the Premier League after the World Cup in Brazil, insisting his time at Chelsea and ordeals with British media hasn't put him off.
The 65-year-old World Cup winner goes into the tournament in Brazil with heavy expectation on his shoulders over the country's chances of winning their 6th World Cup trophy. The Brazilian was of course the last manager to win the World Cup with Brazil when they took the Korea and Japan tournament by storm, thanks largely to the exceptional Ronaldo.
On his future after the tournament, he has decided that he isn’t quite ready to throw in the towel yet and would embrace a job in the Premier League. In a recent interview with The Guardian the Brazilian stated:
‘’I wish my work at Chelsea could have lasted longer,especially because I was prepared to spend at least two or three seasons in London and experience the Premiership’’
‘’If I had to return to England, I would do it’.’
The chances of a return to Chelsea are very slim, even if Mourinho was to go I doubt Abramovich would entertain the idea of a second spell with a man he didn’t work well with.
If Wenger wins the Premier League this season, it would be easy to see him step down which could open up a move for Scolari to Arsenal.
But, the most realistic side upon a return to Premier League football would be Tottenham Hotspur.
Already with a number of Brazil players in the first team, he wouldn’t be a total stranger to the dressing room and could use his wealth of experience and connections to push the team onto the next level.
Tottenham have one of the brightest managers in the game for me, but with the added pressure of doing well this season and with a lot more competition around him, then it only takes a bad run of games for him to get the chop.
