Russia don’t expect Capello exit

The Russian Football Federation are confident Fabio Capello will not quit in favour of a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Reports are gathering pace that the Italian will replace Real Madrid-bound Carlo Ancelotti in the French capital.

“Capello has a contract with the Russian Football Federation,” President Nikolai Tolstykh told R-Sport.

“He has repeatedly talked about how happy he is with the Russian national side and that he intends to continue.”

The 67-year-old, formerly of Milan, Roma, Juventus and Real, is one of numerous tacticians linked with the hotseat at PSG.

Capello has a contract with the Russian national side until the summer of 2014. He was appointed in July 2012.

Fabio Capello’s son was reportedly in Paris on Wednesday for talks.
