FA to decide on Capello in two weeks

FABIO Capello has repeated his desire to remain as England manager - but his future will be decided by the Football Association over the next two weeks.

Capello’s future has been the subject of speculation both before and since England’s dismal World Cup exit against Germany yesterday, with suggestions he could be axed from his role.

And, in his last South African press conference today, he said: “I spoke this morning with (Club England chairman) Sir Dave Richards and he told me that he needs two weeks to decide.”

Asked whether he would like to stay in his role, the Italian said: “Absolutely.

“I said I can be the manager of England for the next season, but it is for him (Richards) to decide.
