Capello reveals chance meeting with Chelsea owner Abramovich

England boss Fabio Capello has revealed he bumped into Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich last week.

Abramovich was spotted with Capello last week but for once the Football Association don't have to concern themselves with the Russian oligarch poaching their manager.

"I went out for a meal with my wife and I was walking to a shop when I met him," says Capello.

"He was coming from another restaurant and we spoke for five minutes about Chelsea."

Not about being a future coach, however.

"No!" said Capello. "It would not be intelligent to meet someone in the middle of the road if that were the case!"
