Scolari vows to see out Portugal deal

Published Add your comment

Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari insists he will see out his contract despite being linked with the England manager´s post again.

The former Brazil boss was first choice when the Football Association were hunting for a replacement for Sven-Goran Eriksson at the start of last year, and the Brazilian has again featured among those being tipped to succeed Steve McClaren - who was dismissed this week in the wake of England´s failure to qualify for Euro 2008.

But he said on Friday: "My contract with the Portugal Football Federation runs out in July 2008. I am very happy in Portugal."
