England coach Fabio Capello has shrugged off speculation linking him with the soon-to-be-vacant Inter Milan hotseat, and reaffirmed his commitment to the England national side in the process.
Over the past few days, the 63-year-old has been increasingly touted to be the man Inter president Massimo Moratti wants to succeed the Madrid-bound Jose Mourinho at the helm of the Italian giants, but Capello has confirmed that he has no interest in returning to his homeland in the foreseeable future;
“I have a contract with the Football Association and the only way it will finish is if they decide to sack me,” Capello is quoted as saying in The Sun.
“I see my name linked with a lot of jobs in Italy and in Spain, but I’m happy here with the FA.”
Meanwhile, Inter midfielder Wesley Sneijder, who has recently been linked with a return to Real Madrid, has backed fellow country man (and former Chelsea boss) Guus Hiddink to take over the managerial reigns at the San Siro.
Speaking to Il Corriere Dello Sport, Sneijder compared Hiddink with Mourinho, admitting that the Dutch coach has the necessary attributes to be a success at the Nerazzurri;
“They both have big motivational skills, but the most important thing is the way they take care of the tactical aspect, instilling lots of courage in their players.
Hiddink has a wealth of experience, he learned that at Real Madrid and Chelsea, and we must not forget that he is the man who won everything at PSV Eindhoven in 1988.
He would do very well at Inter.”
