Chelsea´s Portugal defender Paulo Ferreira sees no reason why Luiz Felipe Scolari should not be the new coach at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are searching for a high-profile successor to Avram Grant, and 29-year-old full-back Ferreira, for one, can understand why the Brazilian may be near the top of Chelsea´s list.

"He´s a good coach... and why not?" asked Ferreira, after he had helped Portugal get their Euro 2008 campaign off to a winning start under Scolari - 2-0 against Turkey in Geneva on Saturday.
