Kelvin MacKenzie: 'Chelsea bosses used lawyers to try and shut me up over Scolari'

Lawyers acting for Chelsea Football Club demanded an apology and substantial damages from the Sun after columnist Kelvin MacKenzie ran a piece last year claiming that some players thought manager Luiz Felipe Scolari was hopeless and his training methods old hat, the paper reveals today.
Now Scolari has been sacked among claims that he had "lost the support of his players," MacKenzie tells readers: "With this week's sudden jettisoning of Mr. Scolari, we now know the Chelsea letter was designed by senior executives at the club to shut me up - presumably so Roman Abramovich wouldn't discover what was happening at his own club."
