Luiz Felipe Scolari updates

After Chelsea's huge announcement to name 'Big Phil' Luiz Felipe Scolari as their new manager,the newspapers in UK are abuzz with speculation and news surrounding it.
Scolari would be the highest paid manager in English Premier League eclipsing the previous two highest grossers,Arsene Wenger(Arsenal) and Kevin Keagan(Newcastle United).He would also be the second highest earning manager in Europe behind newly appointed Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Scolari is expected to earn between 5.5 million pounds to 6 million pounds.Arsene wengers earns an approximately 4.5million pounds,Keagan 4million pounds and Sir Alex Fergusson 3million pounds a season.

Language barrier
His spokesperson has also claimed that language won't be a barrier for Scolari.
"Felipe has already worked in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Japan. In all these countries, he communicated in English.

"Of course, England is the native country of the language but I can assure you that language will not be any problem."

Scolari has never managed a European club and this would be a daunting task for the manager as well as the Chelsea squad.
