Abramovich was spotted with Capello last week but for once the Football Association don't have to concern themselves with the Russian oligarch poaching their manager.
"I went out for a meal with my wife and I was walking to a shop when I met him," says Capello.
"He was coming from another restaurant and we spoke for five minutes about Chelsea."
Not about being a future coach, however.
"No!" said Capello. "It would not be intelligent to meet someone in the middle of the road if that were the case!"
