Portugal head coach Luis Felipe Scolari has hinted he might be interested in the vacant Chelsea post by admittng that he would have no problem settling into a job in another country.
Scolari, whose contract as Portugal manager ends after Euro 2008, has been heavily linked with the currently vacant managerial position at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have reportedly contacted Scolari’s current employers – the Portuguese Football Federation -Â over his availability, as the Blues are apparently keen to appoint a new manager in the coming days.
World Cup winner Scolari would appear to fit the requirements for aÂ ChelseaÂ manager, and although he denied admitting any interest in the move to West London, he did suggest he his open to the prospect.
“I have a contract with the Portuguese Football Federation which I will fulfil and we will see what happens at the end of that,” said Scolari.
“I will see what happens, it would be difficult to leave Portugal, if I have to do it, but I am professional and I could live in another country.”
