Capello: 'No PSG negotiations'

“We did not begin any negotiations with PSG over my father,” said Fabio Capello’s son Pierfilippo.

The reports emerged late last night that 67-year-old Capello, who is currently manager of the Russian national team, was set to sign for the French title holders.

While Capello Jr confirms he was in talks with Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo, he insists it was due to his other work as an agent.

“The meeting was simply about a few players and some opportunities,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was an encounter we had organised with Leonardo some time ago. I have known him for over 15 years, so it’s just a coincidence that the meeting occurred while rumours were circulating about my father.

“We did not begin any negotiations with PSG over my father.”

Today the Russian Federation also insisted Capello would not be leaving his post.
