Fabio Capello retires from coaching

Top-notch Italian football coach, Fabio Capello, has announced his retirement from the game after a career spanning five countries and countless titles both as a player and a coach.

The former AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma and Juventus coach on Monday told RAI state radio he was not interested in the open job with Italy’s national team.

The 71-year-old Capello left as coach of Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last month only three matches into the season. He signed an 18-month contract with the Nanjing club in June 2017, helping the 2016 league runner-up avoid relegation.

“I’ve already had experiences with the England and Russia national teams,” Capello said. “I wanted to coach a club once more and Jiangsu was my last football job. I did everything that I wanted to. I’m pleased with what I did and now I’ll enjoy being an analyst. You always win in that role.”

Capello was most successful at Milan, guiding the Rossoneri to four Serie A titles and the 1994 Champions League trophy.

He also won titles at Madrid and Roma, plus two Serie A’s at Juventus that were wiped out following the Calciopoli refereeing scandal.
