Ex-England boss Capello not reading into Chelsea rumours

Fabio Capello has made it vehemently clear that he is currently committed to his role as Russia manager.

The former England boss is being heavily linked with the Chelsea job but he insists he is focused on Russia's 2014 World Cup campaign and has no understanding of any interest from the reigning European champions.

"I know nothing about this (link to Chelsea). I am really happy with Russia and focused to qualify for the World Cup," he said.

Capello's Russian side, who sit top of Group F qualifying with a perfect record, are preparing to take on fourth-placed Northern Ireland in Belfast tomorrow night.
