Scolari future up in the air


Oct 24, 2017-

Guangzhou Evergrande players and staff tossed an emotional Luiz Felipe Scolari in the air and hailed the Brazilian coach after they sealed their seventh straight Chinese Super League title in what is expected to be his final season in charge. Scolari’s men thrashed Guizhou Zhicheng 5-1 at home on Sunday to win the Chinese Super League with two games to spare, their seventh trophy under the former Brazil, Portugal and Chelsea coach. The 68-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and his anticipated departure signals the end of a successful two-year stint.
