Inter do not need me and should give Gian Piero Gasperini more time - Fabio Capello

The England coach has downplayed rumours linking him with the Giuseppe Meazza side and was full of praise for Napoli following their draw against Manchester City
England coach Fabio Capello has made it clear that there is no truth in the rumours linking him with Italian powerhouse Inter.

A number of recent reports suggested that Capello is in the frame to replace Gian Piero Gasperini at Giuessepe Meazza, but Capello feels that the Inter tactician just needs time to get things going.

Gasperini has come under fire following the club's disappointing start to the 2011-12 season, in which they have suffered defeats at the hands of AC Milan, Palermo and Trabzonspor.

"Massimo Moratti? Who is he?" joked Capello to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday evening. "Inter do not need me. Let's give their coach the time he needs to do his work."

Capello then moved on to discuss Napoli's 1-1 Champions League draw away against Manchester City on Wednesday and was full of praise for the Serie A representatives.

"Napoli struggled a bit in the opening 20 minutes, but then showed what they're made of. Drawing away against Manchester City is an excellent result, because they're one of the strongest teams around in Europe.

"The Serie A title race is between Inter and Milan, but Juventus and Napoli are also candidates. Napoli have really impressed me in the Champions League."
