The high cost of sacking Capello

MOST COMMENTED

Firing Coach Fabio Capello would cost the English FA about $15 million in compensation to the 64-year-old Italian who has a $9 million a year contract through 2012. Capello, who has won Champions League, Italian Serie A and Spanish La Liga titles, exited with England with a 4-1 round-of-16 loss to Germany after finishing second to the USA in group play.

Capello says he wants to stay on and with possible replacement Roy Hodgson on the verge of joining Liverpool, the chances of Capello remaining at England's helm have increased.

England national team program chairman Dave Richards said a decision on Capello's future will be made in two weeks at the earliest.

Phil Gartside, a member of the FA's main board and a close ally of Richards, said: "We've got the best man for the job. It's not his fault. I hope he stays and I think he will stay. He has done a good job and he needs to be able to get on with it. It's not about the money, we have to be strong."
