Inter include Capello on shortlist

Inter have reportedly drawn up a shortlist of possible replacements for Rafa Benitez following his side's latest defeat in Serie A, which includes Fabio Capello.

The Nerazzurri haven't won a match in five games in all competitions and have slipped as far as nine points behind League leaders Milan.

Benitez apparently has just one more game to save his job and that comes against FC Twente in the Champions League on Wednesday.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that Marco Tronchetti Provera, one of Inter's major shareholders, has already made inquiries about hiring Capello.

The England manager was strongly linked with Inter just before the World Cup, prompting the FA to offer him a new contract and close a loophole in his existing deal.

Capello has become deeply unpopular, but the former Milan, Real Madrid and Roma tactician has expressed his desire to retire after Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

Another former Milan Coach, namely Leonardo, is also among the contenders for the job, but the new name being mentioned is that of Diego Simeone who spent two years with Inter in the late 1990s.
