The Football Association have confirmed that Fabio Capello will stay on as England manager despite their recent humiliating World Cup exit in South Africa.
Less than a week after England’s dreadful 4 – 1 loss to Germany in Bloemfontein, the FA have responded in favour of the Italian.
Sir David Richards, chairman of Club England said: “We remain convinced that Fabio is the best man for the job.”
Capello, reportedly on a deal worth £6m a year, knows himself he has a tough job in winning back the supporters ahead of the Euro 2012 qualification campaign.
The former Juventus and Real Madrid boss said: “I can assure the fans I am now fully focussed on our European qualifying fixtures, starting with the friendly against Hungary in August.
“We will look to introduce new players to give the team new energy and I will use all my experience to take England forward. I am determined to succeed.”
With this in mind, current key players including the likes of John Terry and Frank Lampard could be given the chop as Capello looks to freshen a battered and bruised England.
