Brazilian Zico: Luiz Felipe Scolari should have more time at London
The popular and super talented Zico stated that he is against Chelsea for dismissing Luiz Felipe Scolari prematurely.
In fact, the CSKA Moscow coach, whose side played Aston Villa for the UEFA Cup this evening, believes that the man who led Brazil to World Cup glory in 2002 — sacked last week after only seven months — should have been judged at the end of the season.
“People seem to think the role of the coach in Brazilian football is less important because, it seems, they just have to turn up and the footballers victory the World Cup,” Zico, who appeared in the 1978, 1982 and 1986 finals, expressed. “So it is a problem for Brazilian coaches because they do not get time to have an effect on the way a side plays to get the results they want.
“Felipao had lost some games, however he did not lost a championship. We must consider that a reasonable time would have been at the end of this season.”
