England manager Fabio Capello has been linked with Inter many times, but “it's a club I can never join.”
He has won the Scudetto at Milan, Roma, Real Madrid and Juventus, though Don Fabio was also one of the prime candidates for the Nerazzurri job for the past two years.
“There are clubs you are never able to join,” he told news agency ANSA.
“I was 18 years old and Helenio Herrera asked Angelo Moratti to sign me, but the President of my then-club Spal said no.
“Other times we were close, but it never quite reached a conclusion. There's nothing we can do. It feels like hitting the post from point-blank range, as you know it's just not going to go in. I'm like that with Inter.”
Capello was at the helm of Juventus during the 2004-05 and 2005-06 titles stripped in the Calciopoli scandal.
Therefore he was asked to comment on the news Alessandro Del Piero is in his final campaign for the Bianconeri.
“It is wonderful to have these flag-bearers for a club, but the fans demand results and that is what the Coach is chosen for.
“I had Del Piero in my squad and lengthened his career when I realised he needed time to recuperate energy.”
