Capello refuses to discuss his future after England berth ends

England coach Fabio Capello was coy as to his future plans at the Oscar del Calcio awards in Milan on Monday and refused to confirm whether he will return to Italy after Euro 2012. The former AC Milan and Real Madrid manager was presented with a special critics' award at the annual ceremony which rewards the best player, coach, club and referee in the previous Serie A season.

He said: "Before taking a decision we wait for the end of the European Championship. Then let's see if I go back to Italy, as a TV commentator or as a coach."

He added: "I am well in England, I am fine, but the Italian anthem is always a strong emotion."

Looking towards this summer's competition, Capello has labelled Spain as favourites despite England having beaten the World Cup winners in a recent friendly.

He said: "We played them in a friendly and they made a great impression on me with incredible possession of the ball.

"Many are looking for an antidote - even (Jose) Mourinho at Real Madrid - but cannot find it."
