Luiz Felipe Scolari, ComIH (Brazilian Portuguese: [luˈis fɪˈɫipɪ sko̞ˈlaɾi], European Portuguese: [ˈɫwiʃ fɨˈɫip(ɨ) ʃkuˈɫaɾi]; born 9 November 1948), also known as Felipão in Brazil and as Phil Scolari or Big Phil in the English-speaking world, is a FIFA World Cup winner Brazilian football manager and former professional footballer, who is the current manager of Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande in the Chinese Super League.

After winning the World Cup for Brazil in 2002, he was manager of the Portugal national team from 12 July 2003 to 30 June 2008. He led them to the final of the European Championship in 2004, which they lost 0–1 to Greece, and to a fourth-place finish in the World Cup in 2006. Scolari also led Portugal in the European Championship in 2008, but resigned after losing 2–3 to Germany in the second round. After a return to club management, at Chelsea in the Premier League, Scolari was hired again as the manager of the Brazil national team in 2012. He led them to victory at the 2013 Confederations Cup, and to the semi-final in the 2014 World Cup. After the Brazil national team finished fourth overall from a 1–7 loss to Germany in the semi-finals, and a 0–3 loss to the Netherlands in the third-place match, the Brazilian Football Confederation decided not to renew his contract. In 2015, he managed Guangzhou Evergrande to claim 2015 Chinese Super League and 2015 AFC Champions League in his first season with the club.

Along with being Brazilian, Scolari is also an Italian citizen, since he descends from Italian immigrants.
