Scolari plans to bring entertaining brand of football

Luiz Felipe Scolari has promised he will try to bring some samba style to Stamford Bridge this season.

The former Portugal manager is the first Brazilian to take charge of a Premier League side and his tenure as Avram Grant's successor at Chelsea begins tomorrow when Portsmouth are the visitors.

The man the fans all call Big Phil was making no promises ahead of what he insisted could be the most competitive tussle for the title in years.

But he revealed he would try to get his players to entertain as well as attempt to wrest the Premier League and the Champions League trophies from the grasp of Manchester United.

He said: 'The idea is to put on the field, to play our game, in a way that is as similar as Brazilian football as we can. But I have players who are made for English football, their characteristics are different.

'We will try to learn about dribbling, controlling the ball, passing the ball, touching the ball and one-twos. But I need to respect the identity of the players and the quality of the players. We have some players who play similar to those in Brazil. But others don't.'

It was said Jose Mourinho's downfall last season was brought about by his side's lack of flair but Scolari insisted the Brazilian blend plan was not at the insistence of billionaire owner Roman Abramovich.

He said: 'Abramovich wants Chelsea to play very well and win. The fans are the same, it's not just Mr Abramovich.

'But they need to understand that sometimes it is difficult to play beautifully and win. Sometimes it is impossible because the other team plays a different style.

'It is my style and I have been a coach now for 24, 25 years. I try to play very well and win but if you don't win, people forget that you played very well. People kill you. You can play very well for one or two months, then you don't win, then it's over.'

The Scolari era will kick off without striker Didier Drogba, who is still recovering from a knee injury and midfielder Michael Essien is also unfit.

Andriy Shevchenko is still recovering from a groin operation and as Claudio Pizarro has gone on loan to Werder Bremen, Nicolas Anelka is Chelsea's only recognised frontman with experience.

Essien, whose injury has not been specified, is expected to be available again in a week and Drogba in a fortnight.
