Chelsea Manager Scolari Not Interested to Join the War of Words with Ferguson

There was every possibility to see a war of word between Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Chelsea’s newly appointed Brazilian coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. However, Scolari opted not to involve in the conflict with Ferguson, showing no reaction to Ferguson’s recently remark about Chelsea’s aging squad.

Mr. Ferguson recently said that Chelsea’s aged squad had no possibility to improve further as most of players are around 30. United boss does not expect any outstanding progress from Chelsea’s aging squad. However, ‘Big Phil” nicknamed Scolari did not react to this criticism. Rather he defended by saying that Chelsea has a lot of experienced players besides some young players. Scolari thinks that his side has enough experience to take the challenge of premier league or any other competition.

When asked about his reaction on Ferguson’s remark, Brazil’s world cup winning coach rejected to hit back, even though he had enough ground to do so following Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Guangzhou Pharmaceutical in a friendly match in China. In their excellent performance in the friendly match, Salomon Kalou, Frank Lampard, Franco Di Santo and Shaun Wright-Phillips scored for the Blues. Chelsea is now touring China in their pre-season tour.

I think, Scolari has the ability to bring success for a team. Mr. Ferguson may be true in saying Chelsea might not improve a lot next season because they have a squad of aged players, but the matter of fact is that if Chelsea’s experienced and aged players can play according to their merit, then Chelsea might not need any more progress to regain their premier league title and make another successful run in Champions League.

Manchester United manager Ferguson should not forget that veteran players like Edwin van der Sar, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs played a big role behind the doubles success of Manchester United last season, besides the youngsters like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.
