Luiz Felipe Scolari, is a Brazilian football manager and former professional footballer.
After leading the Brazilian side to a World Cup win in 2002, he was manager of the Portugal national team from July 2003 to June 2008. He led Portugal to the final of the 2004 Euro, which they lost 0–1 to Greece, and to a fourth-place finish in the 2006 World Cup. Scolari also managed Portugal through the 2008 Euro, but resigned after a 2–3 loss to Germany in the second round.
After a return to club management at Chelsea in the Premier League, Scolari was hired again as manager of the Brazil national team in 2012. He led them to victory at the 2013 Confederations Cup, and to the semi-final in the 2014 World Cup. After the Brazil national team finished fourth overall in an upset 1–7 loss to Germany in the semi-finals, and a 0–3 loss to the Netherlands in the third-place playoff, the Brazilian Football Confederation decided not to renew his contract. In 2015, he started work at Guangzhou Evergrande and went on to claim both the 2015 Chinese Super League and 2015 AFC Champions League in his first season with the club.
Scolari is a dual citizen of Brazil and Italy, as he is descended from Italian immigrants.
