Apparently The Gene Hackman needed more than a little Quaresma.
Chelsea has fired manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, giving the Brazilian former World Cup-winning coach little more than a half season in charge at Stamford Bridge. The move couldn't come as much of a surprise for a club currently sitting in fourth place in the EPL.
Who will come in to replace Scolari? Assistant Ray Wilkins will be the caretaker but you know some big-named manager will be taking over. Could Avram Grant, the man who led Chelsea to the Champions League final less than a year ago, be ready to return? Crazier things have happened.
What do you think of Scolari's firing? Right thing to do? Hasty decision? Think Chelsea will consider Sven Goran Eriksson if he becomes available on Thursday?
