Chelsea legend Vialli understands Capello reaction

Chelsea legend Gianluca Vialli is convinced Fabio Capello will return to Serie A.

Chelsea legend Gianluca Vialli is convinced Fabio Capello will return to Serie A.

Capello resigned as England manager on Wednesday after giving an Italian television interview in which he criticised the FA’s decision to strip John Terry of the captain’s armband.

“I think Capello’s reaction was understandable,” said former Chelsea manager Vialli on Sky Sport Italia.

“The FA should’ve told Capello their decision first, then gone to the media. It’s only normal that he got angry. It’s also normal, I should add, that the Federation accepted his resignation.

“I think the new England manager has already been chosen. It’ll be Stuart Pearce until the end of Euro 2012, then Harry Redknapp. He represents English football of a certain type, but I doubt the FA would settle for having Redknapp part-time, considering his work with Tottenham.”
