Fabio Capello slams English FA

Fabio Capello has slammed the English FA, stating that he resigned because he could not stand their interference.

The Italian trainer stepped down from his role as national selector after John Terry was stripped of the Three Lions captaincy.

Capello has recently been announced as the new manager of Russia, and used his first press conference as the eastern European country’s boss to slate his former employers.

“I was really angry with the FA interference in my work. I could not bear it,” Sky Sports document Capello as saying.

“I resigned and wanted to retire completely but the desire to win a place in the World Cup finals with a national side remained.

“It made me change my mind and accept the RFU proposal. It is my main goal and I want to make it happen,” he confessed.
