Capello will stay as England boss

FABIO Capello is to stay on as England boss, it emerged this afternoon.

The Football Association confirmed the news today, bringing a swift end to speculation about the Italian’s future.

“I am more determined than ever to succeed with the England team,” said Capello, who will now manage the team until at least the end of Euro 2012.

The decision was taken following a meeting of the four-man Club England board, which decided unanimously to keep Capello, despite the Three Lions’ woeful performance at the World Cup.

“Sir Dave Richards has called me to tell me everyone at The FA wants me to continue,” said Capello.
