Scolari is currently preparing the Brazil national side for their home World Cup next summer, and they will be one of the favourites for the competition following their victory in the Confederations Cup this summer.
Despite only lasting seven months at Stamford Bridge before being sacked by Billionaire owener Roman Abramovich, Scolari has talked up chances of him managing in England once again.
When asked if he ever saw himself returning to England in the future, Scolari said: “If I had to return, I would do it.”
“Chelsea are a spectacular club and I still want them to do well.
“The supporters are amazing and even though things didn’t work out I still remember how nice the fans were to me,” he continued.
“I was upset by the way my departure from Chelsea happened. I wish my work at Chelsea could have lasted longer.”
Scolari joined the Blues in the summer of 2008, but by early 2009, he had packed his bags and went to manage Uzbekistani champions Bunyodkor. A short spell at Palmeiras followed, before he took the reigns of his country once more. Scolari famously led Brazil to a World Cup triumph in 2002, and will be aiming to do the same next summer.
