Scolari Pulls Out Of England Running

Posted on April 28, 2006

Luiz Felipe Scolari has sensationally pulled out of the running to be the next England manager just 24 hours after he was considered a dead cert to be Sven-Goran Eriksson’s replacement.

The Brazilian, who will manage Portugal at this summer’s World Cup finals, revealed in a press conference that he didn’t want to be considered for the post anymore.

The 57-year-old, who guided Brazil to the 2002 World Cup, cited pressure from the media as the reason for his shock u-turn.

“There are 20 reporters outside my house now,” he said.

“If that is part of another culture, it is not part of my culture. I am not the coach, and will not be (England’s) coach.”
