Capello rules out taking over at AC Milan

The ex-Three Lions manager has stressed that he has not been approached to take over the Rossoneri, but admitted that he is eager to return to club coaching
Former England boss Fabio Capello has revealed that he is eager to return to club management, but ruled out becoming the new coach at AC Milan.

A number of recent reports suggest that the Rossoneri could part company with current trainer Massimiliano Allegri this summer if they fail to win the Serie A title, and Capello has been touted as a possible replacement.

However, the 65-year-old has made it clear that he has not been in touch with the reigning Italian champions as he continues to seek out a job opening with a club outside the peninsula.

"I've read the stories about me joining Milan, but none of it is true. I haven’t had any contact with them," Capello stated to Sky Sport.

"I have great respect for Milan and for everything I did with them, but that’s it. I was at San Siro to accompany my grandchildren. They are Milan fans and they had never been to San Siro.

"I want to be a coach for the next two years, but not for a national team. It has to be a club. I would like to work abroad as a coach. I will only work in Italy if there is an interesting project for me."

Capello previously coached Milan from 1991 until 1996, before making a quick return in the 1997-98 campaign.
