Scolari: I turned down Juventus coaching offer
World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari says he turned down an
offer from Juventus to stay with Bunyodkor.
Scolari said on Bunyodkor’s Web site that he rejected
Juventus’ offer because he is “completely satisfied” at the Uzbek
league leaders and Asian Champions League quarterfinalists.
Scolari signed an 18-month deal in October to coach the Uzbek
team and oversee a youth sports academy in the Uzbek capital,
Scolari, who took over from Brazilian great Zico, was fired
by English Premier League club Chelsea in February.
He coached Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, and also
coached Brazilian clubs Gremio and Palmeiras to Copa Libertadores
