Ex-England boss Capello not headed to PSG says Russian federation

The Russian Football Union (RFU) has played down suggestions that national team manager Fabio Capello could be set for Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Juventus, Real Madrid and England boss is believed to be a target for the French champions, who could lose Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, but the RFU insists they are not about to release the Italian from his current contract.

"In regard to the numerous media reports concerning a possible move of Russia's national team coach Fabio Capello to Paris St Germain, the Union officially states that the coach has a contract with the RFU," read a statement from the federation's official website.

"(The contract) runs until after the final stages of the 2014 World Cup, which will be held in Brazil, and Capello is satisfied with his work as the head coach of the national team.

"Based on these facts, the Italian will fulfil his contract until it is completed."
