Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who led Brazil to World Cup glory in 2002, stressed on Saturday that he would not be coaching any national teams between now and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
In an interview with the monthly football review Trivela, Scolari, 60, added that he would “only return to Brazil when his coaching career was over, to visit his best friends”.
But he also did not rule out pursuing his club coaching career.
Scolari in April turned down the job as Mexico coach, and press here have often linked him as a potential successor to incumbent Brazil coach Dunga.
Scolari's track record is certainly impressive: he won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil before taking Portugal to the final of Euro 2004 where they were beaten 1-0 by Greece.
He managed Portugal in the 2006 World Cup in Germany where they managed to reach the semi-finals, losing to France. Scolari then took Portugal to Euro 2008 but the team were eliminated by Germany in the quarter-finals.
