Fabio Capello Resigns As England Manager

Euro 2012 – Fabio Capello Resigns As England Manager

Capello quit as England boss following a dispute over captain John Terry.

“We have accepted Fabio’s resignation, agreeing this is the right decision,” FA Chairman David Bernstein said. “We would like to thank Fabio for his work with the England team and wish him every success in the future.”

Bernstein publicly undermined Capello last week when he said he had not consulted Capello before demoting Terry from team captain. Terry is facing a criminal trial for allegedly racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during a game in October.

Capello criticized the decision on Italian television, stating it was “absolutely” the wrong move.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, who has long been considered Capello’s potential replacement, was cleared by a British jury of tax evasion charges today.

England’s next match is a friendly against the Netherlands on Feb. 29.
