Fabio Capello could be heading for the Anzhi job with Samuel Eto’o, as manager Yuri Krasnozhan terminated his contract today.
Capello caused shockwaves on Wednesday when he resigned as manager of England after a disagreement with the FA over John Terry wearing the captain’s armband.
However, there are strong reports he could go to Russia in order to take over at Anzhi Makhachkala.
The club parted company with current boss Krasnozhan today and Capello is the hot favourite to replace him, the other being Guus Hiddink.
Anzhi are based in Daghestan, but the team lives and trains in Moscow, including former Inter star Eto’o.
