Fabio Capello will reportedly stay on as the manager of England only if he receives unequivocal support from the FA.
The Three Lions exited World Cup 2010 in humiliating fashion on Sunday, having only reached the last 16, as counter-attacking Germany put four past the English defence with apparent ease.
The former Real Madrid boss was expected to achieve great things in the competition, having guided his charges to strong performances in the qualifying stage. But that form appeared to desert them on the big stage, where a 4-1 defeat to an old foe became the order of the day.
The Italian has since admitted that he will seek a meeting with the FA to settle the uncertainty concerning his future, while remaining resolute that he intends to continue managing the national team.
But The Telegraph claims that the gaffer will remain at the helm only if he receives unequivocal support from those he answers to.
It has been said that the FA will wait to assess the full reaction of the public as well as Capello's commitment to the job, before coming to a decision as to whether or not he should remain in charge.
