Fabio Capello is waiting for a phone call from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

The former England coach has declared he wants to continue his career in London and has hopes of landing the Blues post.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Capello is banking on John Terry's influence to sway Abramovich's thinking in his favour. The Blues captain appreciated Capello's support during their time with England and the Italian is hoping it is reciprocated.

Abramovich will make a decision on current manager Roberto di Matteo after Saturday's Champions League final.
