Scolari sacked by Chelsea – your views
Chelsea have sacked manager Luiz Felipe Scolari after just over half a season in charge.
“Luiz Felipe Scolari has been dismissed as manager of Chelsea Football Club with immediate effect,” a statement said on www.chelseafc.com.
Some would say it is out of the blue but others might not be so surprised. On the day Portsmouth also axed Tony Adams, it just goes to show the pressure on clubs in modern football.
Chelsea have been on a bad run for their standards but it is a big risk to switch coaches just weeks before their Champions League last 16 tie with Juventus.
