MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. The Russian Football Union (RFU) will hold a session of the executive committee on Wednesday and is likely to decide on the future of head coach Fabio Capello, Russia’s Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko and RFU acting President Nikita Simonyan have said.
The issue on the need for cooperation with Capello, who has been the head coach of the Russian national team since July 2012, has not been included in the agenda of Wednesday’s meeting.
Any executive committee member may suggest consideration of the issue. If majority backing is secured, a vote will be held on whether Capello should continue his work with the national squad or the contract with him should be cancelled.
Simonyan and Mutko, who will attend the meeting, could propose their scenario for the members of the executive committee.
The Italian may continue his work as head coach but if the team fails to enter the final of Euro-2016, Capello could be sacked. Under the current contract, Capello will be paid a compensation of more than 20 million euros in case of unilateral termination.
