Fabio Capello to stay on as England manager
Fabio Capello is to remain as England manager, the Football Association have confirmed.
The decision comes after the Italian’s future was placed in much doubt on the back of England’s disastrous World Cup campaign in South Africa.
England crashed out in the last 16 to Germany in a humiliating 4-1 defeat but the 64-year-old has been backed by The FA.
Sir Dave Richards, the Club England chairman said: “We are all still extremely disappointed at our performance in South Africa, and we believed it was important that we took some time to reflect on everything in a calm and considered manner back in England.
“After fully discussing our performance we remain convinced that Fabio is the best man for the job.
“He went into the World Cup with a reputation as one of World football’s finest managers and we are confident Fabio will benefit from his first international tournament experience and this will undoubtedly make us all stronger for the Euro 2012 campaign.”
