Capello confirms 2018 retirement

Fabio Capello has confirmed that he will retire from the game after the 2018 World Cup.

The former Milan and Roma Coach is currently in charge of the Russian national team, and is currently preparing to take the country to the tournament in Brazil this summer.

However, the veteran tactician has revealed that he will call it a day after his contract expires in four years’ time.

“After the World Cup in 2018 I’ll be 71,” he told R-Sports. “And at that point it will be time to stop.

“This is my last contract. I’ll do what Alex Ferguson did. He went at 72, and I’ll be gone a year earlier.”

The ex-Italy international won five Serie A titles with the Rossoneri and the Giallorossi, as well as one Champions League, one European Super Cup and four domestic Supercoppas during a 17-year managerial career in italy.
