One of the greatest football coaches of all times, Fabio Capello, officially retired from the coaching business today.

The Italian manager said that after several decades of working it is time for him to relax and became a television analyst. “I did everything I wanted, I’m very happy with what I did, and now I am delighted to be a TV commentator. You always win in this role!” Capello said.

In his wealthy career, 71-year-old was in charge in only the top European clubs, Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, Juventus, where he won numerous trophies. Among them the Champions League with Milan, multiple national titles in Spain and Italy and cups, etc.


He also worked in the English and Russian national teams, but there he didn’t manage to produce notable results.

His latest job was in China, where he coached Jiangsu Suning, but he didn’t do well in the Far East and got sacked recently.

Immediately the rumors started, saying that Capello might be the new head coach of the Italian national team. After a disaster in these World Cup qualifications, the Italians are going to miss the most prestigious football tournament in the world, and a perfect candidate for bringing them back on the right path is exactly him.

However, Capello was decisive in his intention to retire and ruled out that possibility. “Italy’s bench? I have already said no,”
