Money mattered in Blues deal - Scolari

Published Add your comment

Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari admits money played a part in his decision to join Chelsea - and has revealed he only intends to coach for "four or five more years".

The 59-year-old Brazilian, whose side play their final Euro 208 Group A match against already-eliminated co-hosts Switzerland on Sunday, takes up the reins at Stamford Bridge on July 1 and claims the Blues post was simply too good an offer to turn down.

"I´m 59, I´m going to turn 60 very soon (in November)," he said. "I don´t want to coach until I´m 70. I want to work for four or five more years and then retire."
