Well it seems that Luiz Felipe Scolari's biggest regret of his managerial career has been his time at Chelsea. He has given yet another interview on his take at his time at the Bridge and this time he has revealed that he wanted to sign Robinho and then swap Didier Drogba for Adriano!!.

He said:
"It was my fault that I could not control the locker room in different situations, I tried to do something about that and I tried to sign Robinho, because I wanted someone who could improvise. In England, you need someone like that.

I also tried a switch to release Drogba for Adriano, because Adriano was having some problems at Inter. I told the directors that I could manage his behaviour problems.

He [Drogba] wanted to recover from injury in a big clinic in Paris, in the summer, I said no. Anelka, who never scored much against anyone, was my top scorer. When Drogba recovered, I couldn't take Anelka out.

Ballack was always a little angry because Deco was signed and I had indicated him. But I indicated Deco not to take Ballack out but to add to the squad. But I couldn't explain that. Probably I couldn't express myself the way I normally do in Brazil."

Thank God the Drogba / Adriano swap deal never happened. His comments go to show that really he never had a clue about our league and the players in it. Robinho came to England and didn't last long and left. Deco was a failure at Chelsea if you think about it and as for getting rid of one of the best strikers in the world to swap him for someone because he could control his behaviour problems is just a joke!.

It's no wonder he lost the dressing room. One of the best decisions Roman Abramovich has ever made getting rid of him. I have nothing against the man personally but as far as Premier League football goes and Chelsea, you only have yourself to blame.
