Capello: 'Inter don't need me'

England manager Fabio Capello urges Inter to give Gian Piero Gasperini time and hails Napoli's performance against Manchester City.

Capello has been among the contenders for the future of the Nerazzurri after Gasperini started his career with three defeats in as many official games.

“Inter do not need me. Let us give the Coach time to do his work,” he told journalists at a publicity event in Italy.

“The Scudetto is between Milan, Juventus, Inter and Napoli. The Partenopei are doing very well and played a great game in the Champions League.

“Don't forget a draw away to Manchester City is a wonderful result, because I consider City to be without doubt among the strongest sides in Europe at the moment.”

Capello also cast his eye over his ‘local' club Udinese, who went out of the Champions League play-off.

“I saw both their games against Arsenal, both home and away. They did very well, but were not lucky and I know in football you need a bit of good fortune.

“Udinese have a fine Coach, the right mentality and a club that pays attention. As a manager, I know how important it is to have a strong club behind you.”
