Chelsea ready to send SOS to Russia coach Capello

Fabio Capello is under consideration at Chelsea. The Sunday Mirror says while angry Chelsea fans refuse to accept Rafa Benitez as interim boss, Capello's name is being discussed around the club as a short-term fix.

Capello, 66, has made a dramatic impact with Russia since ­resigning as England coach in February 2012. He stepped down ­after Chelsea skipper John Terry was stripped of the England captaincy.

Russia are on course to qualify for the 2014 World Cup Finals. Capello has been in charge for seven games - Russia are ­unbeaten in these and have won five of them.

 Will Blues fans welcome Capello? Is he a better option than Avram Grant? Give us your shout below...
