Chelsea Sack Scolari

scolari 1 Chelsea Sack Scolari

Luiz Felipe Scolari has been sacked by Chelsea.

The last straw for Chelsea FC was the club’s uninspiring 0-0 draw at home against Hull City. The draw pushed Chelsea further behind in the league title race after Liverpool and Manchester United both recorded wins. The club are now seven points behind league leaders Manchester United.

Scolari joined Chelsea seven months ago as replacement for Avram Grant.

Ray Wilkins will take temporary charge of the side for this Saturday’s FA Cup game against Watford.
