Capello: No plans to coach in Italy

Fabio Capello plans to relax rather than return to coaching in

Italy after blaming a ”misunderstanding” for his exit from

England job.

The Italian quit on Wednesday after the English Football

Association decided to strip John Terry of the captaincy because of

his pending trial for alleged racial abuse of a player.

”I haven’t run away. I left because there was a

misunderstanding,” Capello told Italy’s Mediaset television in

Lugano, Switzerland on Friday. ”I was very happy there, but there

are times when you just decide to leave.”

Capello had planned to leave the England job after the European

Championship in July and had insisted he would not be seeking

another coaching role.

The 65-year-old Capello’s view doesn’t appear to have changed,

despite Inter Milan being touted as a possible destination this

week for the former Roma, Juventus and AC Milan coach.

Asked if he would coach again in his home country, Capello

responded: ”Not in Italy, absolutely not. For now, I want to

relax.”
