Two months after becoming head coach of Palmeiras, Luis Felipe Scolari claimed on Friday that he was not satisfied with the results the team had produced.

The coach lamented the many points the team was unable to win over the last two months. He believed that the team should be among the Brazilian Championship's top-four teams.

Scolari expressed his hopes that he would be better received by the players in his return to Palmeiras. The coach also admitted that he had fallen short of the expectations over the last two months.

The unhappy coach declared that he could not stand to continue this way till the end of the year. In 16 games under the command of Scolari, Palmeiras had only won four games, tied eight matches and lost four times.

The coach pointed out their next match against rivals Sao Paulo on Sunday as being highly important. A win against their rivals may produce the spark needed to ignite a rally in the final stretch of the Brazilian Championship.
