Scolari Made The Right Decision

luiz felipe scolari Scolari Made The Right Decision

Imagine what if Scolari had accepted the England job before the World Cup? If you remember, the FA wanted Scolari to agree to the job before the tournament began and to start his new position immediately after the World Cup.

In hindsight, what a good decision this was by Scolari and what a poor decision by the FA. Otherwise, Scolari would have gone into the match this Saturday managing Portugal, but knowing that he would be taking the England job after the World Cup. All hell would have broken loose in the Portugese press as I’m sure they would have insinuated that Scolari might have wanted England to win the match.
