Former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed that the club's failure to sign Robinho may have contributed to the fact that his reign at the Bridge was so unsuccessful.

Scolari said: "In the past, [Arjen] Robben was at Chelsea and he could make the difference. But now there is no one.

"Robinho could have been this player. He is not afraid to dribble, to take a risk. As a Brazilian, I like this. My team isn't Brazilian enough. It is a 'bureaucratic' team. That's the style of my players. That's why Robinho would have done a lot of good for the team.

"With my squad it's very difficult to play with Drogba and Anelka up front. I don't have the players to play on the wings in that system."
