Capello eyes English club job

Updated: May 4, 2012

Former England manager Fabio Capello has said he would like to manage a ‘top’ English club side.

Having stated that the England job would be his final job in football; Capello appears to have had second thoughts.

“England would be very interesting for me because I know the teams and players very well,” the 65-year-old told The Times newspaper. “I want to manage a team that wants to win something, if possible.

“It has to be interesting based on the value of the team, not money. I don’t work for money,”  added Capello, who quit the England job in February due to his dissatisfaction with the FA who had stripped John Terry of the captaincy of the national team without the Italian’s consent.

Capello, who enjoyed successful spells at club level with AC Milan, Roma, Juventus and Real Madrid, also said he supported the FA’s decision to appoint West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson as his successor as England boss.

“I have known Roy since he was coaching in Italy [with Inter Milan] and I have met him often in these last few years,” he added.

“I believe he is a very good and experienced manager and he is a very good choice for the England national team. I wish him all the best for the future and Euro 2012.”
