Capello says no to Italian football team coach job


Rome, March 17: Former England and Russia head coach Fabio Capello has denied his interest in coaching the Italian football team.

Capello, the former Real Madrid, Milan, Juventus and Roma coach has been tipped as one of the favourites to replace Antonio Conte after Euro 2016.

"I don’t want to set foot in the Nazionale,” he was quoted as saying by football-italia.net on Wednesday.

“I’m sorry, I am proud that my name is mentioned, but I do not want to be in charge of a national team again," the 69-year-old added.

“I already had experiences with England and Russia. If there was a side I could train daily, then that would be ok.”
