Capello investigation extends to family

An investigation into possible tax fraud by England manager Fabio Capello has been extended to his wife Laura Ghisi and two children, Edoardo and Pier Filippo, prosecutors in Turin said on Tuesday.

"I can confirm that Capello's wife and children are being investigated for the same charges," prosecutor Marco Gianoglio told Reuters.

In January prosecutors said they were investigating whether Capello should have been paying Italian tax on money, earned from sponsors, which the coach was holding abroad.

Judicial sources said investigators are checking to see whether "millions" of euros have gone undeclared.

At the time Capello said in a statement on the FA Website that his finances were in order and he was not aware of any matters that would be of concern.
