Chelsea defender Alex tells Scolari: I want to stay at Stamford Bridge

Brazilian defender Alex has told Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scolari he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge.



In a private meeting with Scolari, the Chelsea defender denied he wanted to leave the club and was happy to remain a key part of the squad.



Speculation over Alex's future surfaced in the light of two newspaper articles in which the player was quoted as saying he wanted to quit.

But Scolari insisted he had no reason to doubt Alex's explanation and commitment when the pair held talks over the issue.

'When the player comes to my room and tells me he has not said anything and I am happy here, I don't want to go, I believe him,' said Scolari.

'He told me is not thinking of leaving. The club have a contract with all of us and they respect the contract. The players respect the contract with the club.'

However, none of Chelsea's squad will be sold in the forthcoming January window according to chief executive Peter Kenyon.

Scolari has now accepted Kenyon's philosophy and does not foresee any change.

'Peter Kenyon has said many times now that we will not sell players and we won't buy players,' said Scolari. 'Peter is my boss and if he says that this is the philosophy, it is okay, it is finished.'

Alex will be part of the squad that travels to Merseyside tomorrow in preparation for Monday night's clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

But Scolari will still be without central defender Ricardo Carvalho for a further 10 days.

The Portugal international has been sidelined with a knee injury he sustained against Hull at the end of October.

Scolari was hoping to have him back for the festive period but now accepts that he will have to wait a little longer.

'Ricardo is not in good condition at the moment,' said Scolari. 'He needs another 10 days maximum.'

Chelsea have a 100% away record so far this season and should continue that record-breaking run against an Everton side that has also struggled at home this season.

But the big dilemma facing Scolari is how to accommodate strikers Didier Drogba and top scorer Nicolas Anelka in the same system.

The Brazilian coach hinted that training ground work had evolved to an extent that a change to his 4-3-3 system could be on the cards.

However, Scolari may choose to remain loyal to Anelka and select him as the main striker against Everton while unleashing his new system against West Brom on Boxing Day.

'We need to adapt the system to suit the characteristics of the players,' said Scolari.

'The spirit of the players for the system is better than before. If I don't have confidence in the system and need to get a result, it is impossible.

'This week we trained many times for the future and had more time to look at one more system.

'The last few days have been very good for us and maybe in the next game at Stamford Bridge, we'll see what's happened.'
