Ruud Gullit believes Luiz Felipe Scolari is perfectly equipped to deal with the demands and expectations at Chelsea.

The Brazilian, who succeeds sacked Avram Grant, was confirmed as the new Blues boss earlier this month while still leading Portugal at Euro 2008.

Former Chelsea boss Gullit has tipped him to succeed, telling Ford´s Feel Football programme: "He will deal with it. He has had the Brazilian national team and they are all big stars also, so he will be able to deal with that."
