Vlog on the pitch – Reactions to Scolari’s arrival

July 9, 2008

Luiz Felipe Scolari held his first news conference as Chelsea manager on Tuesday.

Regular vlogonthepitch pundit Pedro Redig attended the event and spoke to journalists from Brazil (Fernando Duarte, O Globo) and Portugal (Alexandre Albuquerque, RTP) where Scolari made a name for himself as an international manager.

Pedro also got some British reaction from Sky Sports News reporter Nick Collins.

Will Big Phil continue to wow the press pack or might he be exposed by a lack European club experience?

Big Phil will be a big hit in the Premiership. The title race will be a dandy with him in the frame, United still powerful, Liverpool gearing up and desperate for the regular season trophy, etc, etc – not to mention beautiful Arsenal and Ramos’s for real Tottenham. The season was going to be big and beautiful without Phil – but now it will be bigger.

I would have loved Big Phil to be my teams’ manager, unfortunately my favourite club has got an equally good manager in Benitez.

Looking forward to an exciting season.

I think Big Phil’s arrival will be amazing. Looking forward to him clashing with Alex Ferguson and Wenger. 3 massive egos and 3 very capable managers battling it out. Good stuff! Btw should cover the arrival of fantasy.football-league.co.uk. Its the new fantasy game for the Championship. One up for the lower league clubs versus the premiership. Come on!
