Fabio Capello of Italy has been appointed a new head coach of the Russian national football team. The contract should be signed on Wednesday or Thursday, according to the RFU's acting head Nikita Simonyan. The position was vacant after coach Dick Advocaat left the team following Russia's Euro 2012 group stage exit.
Capello is one of the most respected coaches, having won five Series A titles with Milan, Roma and Juventus, as well as two Spanish crowns with Real Madrid and the UEFA Champions League with Milan. The 66-year-old worked as England manager from December 2008. On February 8, 2012, he resigned after a dispute with the Football Association.
