Fabio Capello Signed New Contract to Remain England Coach until Euro 2012

Fabio Capello has put his pen on an amended contract with the FA, and thus, ensuring his stay as England boss until Euro 2012. With the signing of the new contract, a clause, which was included in Capello’s initial deal with FA, has now been removed. The clause would have allowed Capello to quit the England job after the end of the World Cup 2010.

Signing of the amended contract has committed his future to England national team. Now, it is clear that England is going to be managed by Capello till the Euro 2012.

There were rumors linking Capello with a move to Inter Milan where the managerial job is currently vacant following Jose Mourinho’s move to Real Madrid.

Fabio Capello is all set to fly to South Africa with his 23-man final England squad on Wednesday. The coach finalized the squad on 1 June.

The 63-year-old former Real Madrid manager is delighted after signing the new contract.

He said to the media, “I am very happy about this and would like to thank the Football Association (FA) for its continued support and assurances about my future. I always wanted to stay until the end of my contract.”

Fabio Capello took charge of England national team in 2007 following England’s disastrous Euro 2008 qualifying campaign where they failed to qualify for Euro 2008 finals. Under Capello, England has done extensively well. The Three Lions won 9 out of their 10 games during the World Cup qualifying campaign, and thus, reaching the World Cup finals as the group champion.
