Spurs chiefs discussing Capello as Villas-Boas replacement

Fabio Capello is the man Tottenham want to succeed Andre Villas-Boas - should the Portuguese's position become untenable. The Mail on Sunday says AVB earned breathing space with Thursday's Europa League defeat of Tromso - and victory over Manchester United at White Hart Lane today would silence many critics angered after home defeats by West Ham and Newcastle and that humiliation at City.

Capello, 67, is currently managing Russia. He guided them to next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil and the Russians hope he will agree a four-year contract extension next week.
