England Gets Capello
Telegraph, December 13th, 2007 9:03PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

There are just a few more motions to go through before Fabio Capello is named the new coach of the England national team, as the Football Association board has now approved his appointment. The Telegraph said there had been some concern over Capello's preference for an all-Italian coaching staff, but the board has now been suitably convinced. Negotiations over the terms of the contract are all that remain, which means the former Real Madrid will likely be unveiled next week as England's new coach.

'These [negotiations] will continue tomorrow," an FA spokesperson said. "I want to stress that there are no problems and that we are going through the necessary process to reach a successful conclusion."

Capello will become England's 12th full-time head coach. Incidentally, he is also the oldest, at 61. Few coaches across the globe can boast as impressive a record as Capello. He's won a total of nine league titles in Italy and Spain with some of the world's biggest clubs, including AC Milan, AS Roma, Juventus and Real Madrid. In 1994, he won the European Cup with Milan, beating Barcelona 4-0 in the final.
