Brit press on Capello: 'Good riddance'
AFP, February 9th, 2012 1:35AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

The British media shed few tears over exit of England coach Fabio Capello and overwhelmingly backed Harry Redknapp to replace him.

"Good riddance," said the Daily Mirror, which reported that Capello would leave with a $2.4 million payoff despite bailing before Euro 2012. The Guardian's Richard Williams wrote, "Fabio Capello never bothered to learn much English, or much about England. His £6 million ($9.5 million, 7.2 million euros) a year was not enough to interest him greatly in the culture of the country whose national game he was hired to revive by winning a major international tournament."

Henry Winter wrote in the Daily Telegraph that Capello "stamped his feet like a stroppy child" over the English FA's decision strip the captaincy from John Terry, who faces a criminal trial over claims he racially abused Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand.

The Independent: "To quit over the FA taking a stand that it was inappropriate for the England team to be led by a man on a charge of racial abuse is a pathetic waste."
