Luiz Felipe Scolari has broken his silence over John Terry's red card at Everton and claims he does not understand the decision.

The Chelsea captain was shown a straight red card by referee Phil Dowd in the 35th minute of the Goodison Park clash for a late, high lunge on Leon Osman.

Scolari's 10-man side held on to secure a point from a 0-0 draw which leaves them one point behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, but no-one from the Stamford Bridge club would speak to the media after the game.

The former Brazil and Portugal boss has now aired his views, and claims that he only wanted to be given time to consider the incident.
Not normal

Scolari told Chelsea TV: "If I go to say something (straight after the game) maybe I say something wrong and I need more time to look at everything.

"I have to look at the game again if something happened in the game. I need to be sure about this or that. I said no (to the press) at that time because maybe I'd have problems in the future - in that time I am not calm.

"If I go then I answer some questions and I'm angry."

But despite taking time out to make sure he could view the incident again, the Brazilian still cannot comprehend the decision.

He added: "Maybe I look at the game and I change my mind, but I don't change my mind about yesterday. I looked at the game again and I don't change.

"It's the same as I thought yesterday. For me it's not normal. I don't very well understand the decision.

"But he's the referee. After (the red card) John he goes to his friend (Osman) to apologise, he goes off like normal. He's a very good captain, he accepts the decision from the referee."

There was good news for Scolari and his Chelsea side on the training pitch, though, with Ricardo Carvalho back in full training and close to a first-team return following a knee injury.

The Blues boss added: "It's the first time Ricardo has trained with us normally and I think after seven days - 10 days maximum - he'll start to play.",19528,11095_4688491,00.html

any early odds on terry appealing and winning so that he's back to face the world/euro/english champions?
He wouldn't miss the United match anyway.
