Capello contacted by Liverpool - TWICE

Former AC Milan and Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello has revealed Liverpool want him.

The Mirror says Capello has been 'tapped up' twice by Liverpool as Rafa Benitez battles to stay in command at Anfield.

Capello claims he was contacted before and after last week's Champions League win over Porto as boss Benitez's relationship with owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks reached crisis point.

That will alarm the FA, who see the out-of-work Italian, 61, as a potential candidate to succeed Steve McClaren as England boss.

Although Benitez has reached a ceasefire in his war of words with his American bosses, they may be pushed into action if the Reds fail to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages. And they will need a ready-made replacement.
