Former Benfica and Sporting Lisbon coach Jorge Jesus claims he turned down offers from Chelsea and Newcastle this summer, instead taking over at Flamengo in Brazil.

Former Benfica and Sporting Lisbon coach Jorge Jesus has revealed that he turned down an offer from Chelsea this summer.

The 65-year-old had been managing Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia but was available at the time.

Jesus told Fox TV: "If it were for the money, I could have stayed at Al-Hilal. My agent wouldn't want me to come to Brazil. I could also have gone to clubs in England."

Another club Jesus claims to have turned down is Newcastle United, who went on to appoint Steve Bruce on July 17.

The Portuguese instead took over as coach of Brazilian club Flamengo, whereas Chelsea appointed club legend Frank Lampard.
