Deco dismay over Scolari

Scolari-Deco_1600793.jpg

Chelsea midfielder Deco has spoken of his dismay and shock at the decision to sack manager Luiz Felipe Scolari.

The 31-year-old was signed in the summer by Scolari for £7.9million from Barcelona after the pair worked together in the Portuguese national team.

The former Porto ace was away on international duty when he heard the news as Portugal prepare for a friendly with Finland on Wednesday.

The Brazil-born playmaker admitted that the main reason he had been persuaded to come to Stamford Bridge was Scolari himself.

"Scolari is a good coach and he should have been given more time to get the project right," he told the Daily Star.

"I was shocked when I heard the news, I almost could not believe it. The reason I came to Chelsea was to play for Scolari. PITY YOU DIDNT THEN !

"He explained the ambitious project they had here and I decided to sign and rejected a lot of other offers :128:

Striker Didier Drogba also revealed his alarm at the decision while he was away with the Ivory Coast squad.

The former Marseille man has not featured as much as he would have liked under the World Cup winner after failing to rediscover his form of previous seasons.

"It's true results haven't been the best," he told the Daily Mirror.

"But we had time to put things right and enough fighting qualities, especially with our progression in the UEFA Champions League. But our bad results have been decisive.

"I didn't know much about the sacking. Someone called me and told me what had happened.

"When I left London no one was talking about this happening. The club never spoke to the players."

Where was he in the press before this, defending his manager?

Where was he on the field? INVISIBLE.

Zero sympathy for him. Came here to loaf and thats what he did, now the free ride is over. Pull yourself up by your boot straps Deco, time to be a professional and do what you did at Barca

It's hard to speak out when you're sipping cocktails lying on your back in a hammock.

JT's quotes right now being read on SSN.

"He had my support, thats for sure, and I am sure that 2 or 3 other players would say exactly the same thing"

(anyone else confused by that)

"Unfortunately the blame for our season has fallen on his head. Maybe it shouldve fallen on ours a lot more"

(really no maybe about it, not so much him, but the usual suspects)

no maybe about it, they certainly should have taken more stic for the way theyve played the last couple of months. i honestly cant think of anyone other than ash cole and maybe riccy who has played anywhere near the top of their form for more than one game at a time.

I think our defense is not to blame for our current form at all. Cech is the only one who seems to have a hard time, but even there he could be back on the top. The person in charge will need to reconstruct our whole team from the front, and will need to sell many players. That's one thing we will need to understand, the new manager must have two years to orgnize a good team. Ranieri did it in sorts for JM, JM had a good number of players used to playing together and that were a strong and young side.

So what this means, next year we might not contend for the title, all the better, give the youngsters playing time and fight on less fronts. We will not have the dept,like we don't have it right now, to fight for 4 cups. Play only youngsters in the FA and Carling Cups, and play your stars in CL (or UEFA Cup) and the league. Setup a good system and a new transfer system where we don't give away money because we're Chelsea. We have now a good youth system, we should be able to find the new core of the team, the new Terry or Lampard.

One intresting tought about JTs comments, last year when we had the discussion that the squad as turned on Grant, Terry came out to either put the links back together in the club or to protect Grant. He has done none of it for Scolari, so it makes you wonder how much support did he really have from the board and the players.

I think your right, and I think that might be down to the absence of Clarke. Once he left, the team and its spirit really just seemed to evaporate. I think last years squad, even if Grant was not as able as Scolari based on his prior experience, was glued very tightly together because lord knows the way they fought back from a dire start was impressive, and that has to be attributable to "players" coaches like Clarkie and team leaders like JT helping to create that togetherness. So maybe JT was just more naturally bristling at criticism then

I wonder if Steve Clarke was still here, and still in his old role, how the players wouldve rebounded in form, responded to criticism, etc. Another 'what if' to ponder
