London, Dec 21 (ANI): Phil Scolari has admitted for the first time that he is under growing pressure as Chelsea boss.

The Brazilian is under intense scrutiny following a series of poor home displays that have seen the Blues drop 14 points at Stamford Bridge.

Its important for me that we win something this season, maybe more important for me than Chelsea, The Sun quoted Scholari, as saying.

Scolari takes his side to Everton tomorrow chasing a ninth straight away league win.

But he has been forced to strenuously deny talk of dressing room unrest and categorically reject suggestions that centre- back Alex wants to leave.

Scholari is desperate to retain his focus on bagging at least one trophy, for although chief executive Peter Kenyon insists his job is not based on results, Scolari appears less certain.

Asked what might happen if he did not bag silverware, Scholari replied: I dont know what the consequences would be. But maybe its more important for me than Chelsea because its my first time in England and I want to win competitions not just one, I want to win two, three, four. (ANI)
