Capello set for FA talks

England manager Fabio Capello will meet with the Football Association later this week to discuss the Italian's future.

Internazionale are keen to appoint Capello as their new coach after losing Jose Mourinho to Real Madrid.

Capello is also reportedly unhappy with the way Lord Triesman was ousted from his position as chairman of the FA earlier in the month.

Capello is set to discuss his future with Club England chairman Sir David Richards, confirming after England's unimpressive 2-1 friendly win against Japan on Sunday:"The situation will be clear in two days when I will have spoken with Sir David Richards.

"I shook the hand of Lord Triesman but I have not written anything.

"My name is always in the newspapers. My name has been on the radio. But I can't say anything about it. I have not spoken with anyone from Inter Milan."

Club England managing director Adrian Bevington later confirmed:"We will be speaking with Fabio on Monday morning and going over the previous conversations that his advisors had with Lord Triesman about us wanting Fabio to stay until after Euro 2012.

"That is still our position. We have not changed on that whatsoever.

"Clearly there have been changes at the top of the organisation in recent weeks and clearly it is very important to Fabio that he hears that directly from the people who will be leading the England structure going forward.

"Sir David Richards has spoken to Roger Burden, who is the acting chairman of the FA as a whole.

"Roger, with the rest of the board, has agreed that the Club England structure should be run as previously agreed, with Sir David Richards as chairman of Club England and myself as managing director."
