MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. The president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), Nikolay Tolstykh said on Friday he was ready to discuss next week the issue of salary payments of national football team’s head coach Fabio Capello.
Capello's son Pier Filippo, who also acts as his manager, told TASS on Thursday that the RFU had not yet paid Capello's monthly salary for April. He also complained that Russian Football Union had repaid its eight-month wage arrears to Fabio Capello below the market rate.
Tolstykh said earlier on Friday that the eve of the Victory Day was no proper time to discuss Capello's payments, while the coach responded that he was "extremely outraged with the inappropriate and insane words of the president of the Russian Football Union,"
"I really do not understand Fabio Capello's outrage and very emotional and wrongful assessments," Tolstykh said.
"The Russian Football Union is ready to discuss all current working issues regarding his income in this country after the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War," he said congratulating Capello on the Victory Day.
Capello, 68, became the Russian team's chief coach in 2012.
