Scolari to be new Chelsea manager

From the Guardian website:

The Portugal manager Luiz Felipe Scolari is to become Chelsea manager following the conclusion of Euro 2008.

The Brazilian was one of the favourites for the job, but was not expected to make a decision about his future until after the tournament.

"He was the outstanding choice," said Chelsea in a statement. "Felipe has great qualities. He is one of the world's top coaches with a record of success at country and club level, he gets the best out of a talented squad of players and his ambitions and expectations match ours."

"Out of respect for his current role as head coach of the Portuguese national team, and to ensure minimum disruption to this work, there will be no further comment from Chelsea FC nor from Felipe about his new role until his employment with us commences."
