Capello keen to stay on as England boss

Fabio Capello has reiterated his desire to stay in charge of the England national team. The Italian tactician essentially failed at this year's World Cup with the Three Lions eliminated in just the second phase of the tournament but wants to stay on in his role despite receiving offers from several clubs.

"I have spoken with Sir Dave Richards about the two years that I have worked with the FA. They appreciated my work and what all my staff had done. He told me that he has to take two weeks to make the decision," Capello said.

"Absolutely I want to stay. I received a lot of offers to be a manager at other clubs.

"I decided to stay here because I like being England manager and also I will accept whatever the FA decides.

"I am disappointed for the fans who followed us and spent a lot of money. I said that my focus was to arrive at the final so I say sorry to them for that result."
