Capello-Russia link denied

Despite reports suggesting that he had, Fabio Capello has not agreed to take charge of the Russian national team.

The Russians, who were eliminated at the group stages of Euro 2012, are in the market for a new Coach, after Dick Advocaat’s departure to take charge at PSV Eindhoven.

Reports at the weekend named former England boss Capello with the position, whilst rumours this Wednesday intimated that he had already agreed to the task.

However, his son and agent Pierfilippo Capello has categorically denied the suggestion this evening.

“He is in Italy and it is absolutely not true that he has reached an agreement with the Russian national team,” he told Calcionews24.
