Former Chelsea and Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari claims to have an offer from a Premier League club to take over for next season.
The World Cup winning coach last coached Guangzhou Evergrande in the Chinese Super League, and has now alluded to a potential offer from West Brom.
Scolari revealed that the club who have offered him a job for next season are currently in the Premier League, although they will likely be in the Championship next season.
With West Brom currently without a manager having recently sacked Alan Pardew, Albion makes the most sense as Scolari’s future destination. Scolari said;
I like [the Premier League] so much. I always look when I’m in the media world, because I love the Premier League, and maybe next year I am in the Premier League.
No, sorry, the second division [Championship]. I have offers and I try to understand what they want. This is my situation at the moment, because I say to my family; ‘three months I stay Brazil – January, February, March.’ In April, maybe I go outside [Brazil] again.
And I have an offer from the second division in England. They are in the Premier League now, but I think that they go down to the second division. And in the second division, if you have a project for two years, OK – if not, then I stay outside.
Maybe I accept, because I have offers in the United Arab Emirates and China – I need to think.
But England is fantastic. It’s not a problem if it’s first or second division, because the second division in England is maybe the [level of] first divisions in 45 other countries.
It’s not a problem. If the project is correct for the coach, it’s not a problem.
The Baggies are currently bottom of the Premier League table, ten points from safety.
