Inter Milan defender Marco Materazzi admits he'd welcome Fabio Capello as a replacement for Jose Mourinho. Capello, after England's friendly win over Mexico last night, immediately shutdown talk of taking the Inter job.

But Materazzi, discussing potential coaching candidates, told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Capello has the same hunger for success as Jose.

"Sinisa Mihajlovic knows the squad and how they operate. Pep Guardiola (of Barcelona) has similar coaching methods as Jose."

Materazzi also commented on Roma captain Francesco Totti and his Coppa Italia final clash with Mario Balotelli.

"Totti was wrong with Balotelli. He admitted it and apologized. He is a real man like me," added Materazzi.
