The English FA will hold emergency talks with Fabio Capello today in a bid to end Inter Milan’s pursuit of the England manager.
Capello again refused to commit his future to England yesterday after the win over Japan saying:
“I don’t speak with some people from Inter Milan. I know nothing about this. The situation will be clear in two days.”
Inter Milan owner Massimo Moratti has publicly revealed that Capello is on a list of potential replacements for Jose Mourinho and there are reports in Italy that Moratti will make a formal approach to Capello’s representatives this week.
Capello’s has an out clause in his contract at the end of the World Cup and the recent upheaval at the FA seem to have caused his to relook at his position as England boss.
If Capello does announce that he is leaving the England job for Inter before the World Cup, the news certainly will be a distraction to a team that most experts expect to reach at least the quarter-finals.
