Chelsea appoint Luiz Felipe Scolari as their new manager

The Portuguese football team has been attracting much of the mediaÂ’s attention at Euro 2008.

First it was the Cristiano Ronaldo saga and now it is Luiz Felipe Scolari, the newly announced manager of Chelsea.

It is believed that his contract will be in the region of ₤6.25 million per season.

There has been much speculation as to who will fill the vacant Chelsea post after the sacking of Avram Grant last month and Scolari was tipped as one of the leading contenders.
