Scolari denies England talks

LISBON, March 21 (Reuters) - Portugal's Brazilian coach Luis Felipe Scolari has denied he held talks with England's Football Association (FA) at the weekend about becoming England coach.

British media reported Scolari met with English FA officials about taking over from Sven-Goran Eriksson after the World Cup.

'If I had to deny everything that's been written about my future I wouldn't do anything else in the next few months,' , Record sports newspaper quoted Scolari as saying on Tuesday.

'I was in London on Friday for a conference with (former England manager) Bobby Robson. I arrived at 11 in the morning, I went to the meeting site, we had a meeting with business people and it was all over at five in the afternoon.

'I got another taxi to the airport to go back to Lisbon. It's foolishness, and only makes sense if that (FA) director were the taxi driver.'

Scolari steered Brazil to the World Cup in 2002 and Portugal to the runner-up spot in the European championship two years ago.

He has repeatedly said he will only consider job offers after July, when his contract with the Portuguese soccer federation ends with the World Cup finals in Germany.
