Big Phil Is Smarter Than You
Portugal manager and Captain Ramsey doppelganger Luiz Felipe Scolari knows how to play the game. On July 1, he will start his new job as Chelsea manager. In the meantime, he’s focused on the task at hand which is steering Portugal through the Euro.
No one doubts that lifting the trophy in Vienna is Scolari’s main goal but he also has time to counsel his players on their club life. Rumors abound that he has advised Cristiano Ronaldo to transfer to Real Madrid. They are desperate to have him and willing to break the bank to make it happen.
Scolari has even praised him in front of the press during the tournament.
“Ronaldo’s secret thing is the one you all know. He is simple, humble and a magnificent worker. He is part of a group to which he is dedicated and has a will to win of such strength that I have never seen it in anyone else. The others in the group soak up this incredible will to win, dedication and talent. On top of that, he has all his technical qualities. For me, he is one of a kind.”
Sir Alex Ferguson must be turning redder than usual as he watches Scolari push Ronaldo away from Manchester in order to ease Chelsea’s path to another Premiership title. It’s bad enough for him that Real has been blatantly tapping Ronaldo up for weeks. We can’t wait to see how Scolari and Fergie get along especially if Ronaldo forces a transfer to Real. Bring on the new season already.
