Fabio Capello

Fabio Capello (born 18 June 1946) is an Italian football manager and former professional player. He is the current manager of the England national football team, having started the role in January 2008 after the dismissal of Steve McClaren, and is the second foreigner to have managed the England side, the other being McClaren's predecessor, Swedish manager Sven-Göran Eriksson.

Capello has the distinction of winning the domestic league title with every club he has managed throughout his career, with AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma, and Juventus. Capello is one of the few coaches to claim championship victories in four major European cities (Milan, Madrid, Rome, and Turin). He has won a major league championship in seven of his 16 seasons as a coach and oversaw one of the most dominant UEFA Champions League victories of all time.

During Capello's second spell at Real Madrid, he was criticised for not playing world-class players including David Beckham and Ronaldo on a regular basis. After some initial criticism of his tactics and having spent much of the season in second place, he captured the La Liga title on the last day by topping FC Barcelona on head-to-head results. In spite of his success after years of Madrid underachievement, Real Madrid president Ramón Calderón sacked him in the summer of 2007.
