Capello tight-lipped over future
England manager Fabio Capello gave little indication as to his future plans at the Oscar del Calcio awards in Milan last night and refused to confirm whether he will return to Italy after UEFA EURO 2012.
The former AC Milan and Real Madrid manager was presented with a special critics' award at the annual ceremony which rewards the best player, coach, club and referee in the previous Serie A season.
Capello last month insisted he wished to remain with England until the end of their Euro 2012 campaign but last night he did not reveal what he expects to do following the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
He said: "Before taking a decision we wait for the end of the European Championship. Then let's see if I go back to Italy, as a TV commentator or as a coach."
He added: "I am well in England, I am fine, but the Italian anthem is always a strong emotion."
Looking towards this summer's competition, Capello has labelled Spain as favourites despite England having beaten the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ winners in a recent friendly.
He said: "We played them in a friendly and they made a great impression on me with incredible possession of the ball. Many are looking for an antidote - even (Jose) Mourinho at Real Madrid - but cannot find it."
