Portugal coach Luis Felipe Scolari has denied holding talks with England’s Football Association (FA) about the possibility of becoming England coach.

According to reports in the British media, Scolari met with FA officials to discuss the post.

“If I had to deny everything that’s been written about my future I wouldn’t do anything else in the next few months,” Scolari told Record.

“I was in London on Friday for a conference with (former England manager) Bobby Robson. I arrived at 11 in the morning, I went to the meeting site, we had a meeting with business people and it was all over at five in the afternoon.

“I got another taxi to the airport to go back to Lisbon. It’s foolishness, and only makes sense if that (FA) director were the taxi driver.”

Scolari led Brazil to the World Cup in 2002 and Portugal to the runner-up spot in the European championship two years ago.
