Former England coach Fabio Capello is furious over claims he's offered inside information to Italy ahead of tonight's Euro2012 quarterfinal.

Capello has been told of reports claiming he might betray England after four years coaching the country.

"Who the **** is writing this ****?" Capello demanded to know. "I will sue them."

Pierfilippo said: "Fabio went crazy when I spoke to him about this. We will start legal action against anyone who has suggested he has been helping Italy's coach in any way. They haven't even spoken for a year.

"It is an insult to Fabio to suggest he would reveal anything after four years working for the FA.

"He still has many close relationships with people at the FA. He wouldn't do it, he values what he had with the England players too much."
