Luiz Felipe Scolari has trust in Brazil players who aren’t playing regularlyScolari has been clocking up the air miles lately
Luiz Felipe Scolari has been jet-setting quite a bit lately as he prepares for the 2014 World Cup and decides to make the finishing touches to his 23-man squad which is due to be announced next month.
Scolari and his coaches have been travelling around Europe over the past week and the Brazil head coach admits it has been a worthwhile trip.
The Seleção boss told the Brazil Football Confederation website about how his conversation with his Europe based players went.
“Our stay in Europe has been very fruitful,” Scolari added.
“I have told the players to remain calm because whether they are playing for their clubs or not, they have my trust.”
Scolari, Flávio Murtosa and Carlos Alberto Parreira started by watching Paris Saint-Germain versus Chelsea in the Champions League last week, a game featuring eight Brazilians.
Barcelona against Atlético Madrid was the next tie before the trio head to England.
After watching Chelsea against Stoke on Saturday, Scolari and his sidekicks Murtosa and Parreira switched their attention to West Ham versus Liverpool.
The European scouting mission isn’t over yet with two more matches to be viewed this week but Parreira has thanked the hospitality the trio have received from the various clubs they’ve watched lately.
“Everyone has welcomed us and it’s always good to have a good relationship with professional colleagues,” Parreira concluded.
