Luiz Felipe Scolari admits Chelsea "gambled" by making him their new manager, but insists he will strive to repay the club by bringing world-class football to Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian coach was named as Avram Grant´s successor midway through his Portugal side´s Euro 2008 campaign and despite a glowing CV, which includes victory at the 2002 World Cup with his native country, there were some concerns about his lack of experience in top-level European club football.

"Chelsea gambled on my ability but I believe in myself," said Scolari.
