Capello Snubs PSG

MOST COMMENTED

In the end, Fabio Capello, who seemed a shoo-in for the Paris Saint-Germain job on Wednesday, has rejected the chance to move to the Parc des Princes, choosing instead to remain as head coach of Russia. The turn of events also places the anticipated move of PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid in doubt.

While Capello’s son and agent, Pierfilippo, traveled to Paris on Wednesday to hash out a deal with PSG President Nasser al Khelaifi and sporting director Leonardo, the talks stalled due to the length of contract on offer: one-year with an option to renew for another 12 months at the end of next season. Further complicating matters was Russia’s insistence that the Italian tactician see out a notice period, regardless of PSG’s intention to pay his $4 million release clause.

With Capello no longer on an option, PSG is said to be turning to Swansea City’s Michael Laudrup, former Barcelona manager Franck Rijkaard, former Netherlands manager Marco van Basten, and PSG first team coach, Claude Makelele, as possible replacements for Ancelotti, who desperately wants to leave the Ligue 1 champion for Real. According to the Guardian, PSG has one eye on Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger’s expiring contract in 12 months time, which is why it is only looking for a short-term solution.
