Video Paolo Ferreira interview backing Scolari, July 29, 2008, with screenshots

This was when Scolari was at Chelsea. I remember seeing this on Sky Sports news here on Fox Soccer channel. Found the video online yesterday.

On July 29, 2008, Paulo Ferreira spoke on ChelseaTV about Scolari as the new Chelsea coach. This was before Chelsea's 3rd pre-season game Malaysia XI v. Chelsea FC.

About Chelsea coach Luis Felipe Scolari, Paulo Ferreira said:

"...he knows very well Chelsea players. He used to watch some of the games, the English games. With top players, it's always easy to work with. He has qualities. I think he will succeed here and I hope so."

It's interesting because apparently, not even a year later, Scolari couldn't deal with the Chelsea stars. Scolari no longer is the Chelsea coach since February 10, 2009. He's still without a job. Please don't let him manage the Portugal team again. Did Scolari favor Deco? Is it true that some players went over his head to complain about his coaching?
