Russia coach Capello opens door to Premier League move

Russia coach Fabio Capello admits he's missing England and has opened the door to a move to the Premier League.

Speaking through a translator at a question and answer session at the Cambridge Union, the former England boss revealed his strong passion for English football.

He said: "The Premier League is absolutely fascinating. I would be available and would be flattered to be linked with jobs in this league.

"Both my wife and I enjoyed our time in the UK and what I miss about football in the UK is that the stadiums are packed, whereas the Russian league is often half-empty.

"I am used to the media attention from Italy and Spain, and I can handle the newspapers and press here. It is just part of the job. In Russia, it is great because nobody can read the newspapers!"
