MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. The Russian football team’s chief coach Fabio Capello has been paid his delayed salary for two months, a member of the Russian Football Union’s executive committee said on Wednesday.
"Capello has been paid his two-month salary and talks are under way on the sum of the penalty," Sergey Anokhin said.
"I think Capello himself does not want to work with our team as he is not doing it well." he added.
"We want to reduce the sum of the penalty. We will find the money to pay him," Anokhin said adding that the RFU was ready to resolve its financial problems without anyone's help.
Capello took over the national team as the head coach in July 2012 and managed to help the Russian squad to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The team, however, failed to clear the first stage of the much-anticipated global tournament putting their coach in the center of stern criticism and raising serious concerns in the country about the team’s performance in the next World Cup, which would be hosted by Russia in 2018.
Earlier media reports estimated the compensation for RFU’s unilateral severance of the contract with Capello at some $25 million.
