Terry impressed by Scolari's hunger

Chelsea captain John Terry believes Luiz Felipe Scolari's new philosophy will be the difference between success and failure as the Blues look to put last season's disappointments firmly in the past.

After winning the 2006 Premier League title, Chelsea have finished runners-up behind Manchester United for the last two seasons while also suffering a heartbreaking defeat by Sir Alex Ferguson's side in May's Champions League final.

But since taking over from Avram Grant after Euro 2008, former Brazil and Portugal coach Scolari has spoken of 'starting to build a new team and a new philosophy,' a crucial factor in the eyes of Terry.

'The team are determined to win the Premier League and as many trophies as possible,' said Terry.

'When you see the hunger of the new management and the team he has brought in, it's on their minds to do exactly the same.'

On a personal level, Terry admits he is still haunted by his crucial penalty miss in Moscow, but is confident of making amends this season under Scolari.

'Every morning I wake up and it's the first thing on my mind,' he added.

'I still think of it. I'm still very disappointed by it, but I'm a big man and have a big character and it's down for me to deal with it.

'Having the England games straight afterwards helped flush it away a tiny bit, but hopefully we will be successful with the new manager and players this season and flush away all those bad memories.'

Meanwhile, Scolari has conceded his Chelsea side are not the finished article in terms of personnel and performance.

The Brazilian has been pleased with his first three weeks at the helm and is looking forward to his first game at the Guangzhou Olympic Stadium with one eye on the Premier League opener against Portsmouth at Stamford Bridge on August 17.

'We are happy about starting our job here. Our players are in a good condition, but not in the condition to win the title. It is our first game,' he added.

'They have been training very well over the last 10 days. We have started a new job with Chelsea, a new philosophy, different training.

'We have some little problems but this is normal at this stage. But I have good players and they will not be in the same condition in three weeks.

'It is my first game in charge and it is a process for the players to get to know me and what I want on the pitch.

'We have technically good players and they might surprise me and play better than I expect. We want to win every game, but we expect some small problems but we play every game to win.'

Scolari was able to celebrate Michael Essien's signature on a new five-year contract a day after goalkeeper Petr Cech also committed his future to the London club.

'I have not been here long but it is clear to me that Michael Essien is one of the best midfield players in the world,' he said.

'I have always admired him and it is good news for me and for Chelsea that he signs for so long.'

Essien said: 'I am very happy here. We have a great team and fantastic fans who have always made me welcome.

'With the addition of the new manager (Luiz Felipe Scolari), I am feeling very positive about the season ahead.'
