Oops! What could have gone wrong? Fabio Capello after a meeting with the Football Association chairman, David Bernstein and General Secretary Alex Horne has resigned as England manager.
Prior to his resignation, two days ago the the 65 year-old Italian publicly queried the FA’s decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.
According to FA statement, ” In a meeting for over an hour, Fabio’s resignation was accepted and he will leave the post of England manager with immediate effect.”
Bernstein said: “I would like to stress that during the meeting and throughout his time as England manager, Fabio has conducted himself in an extremely professional manner.
We have accepted Fabio’s resignation, agreeing this is the right decision. We would like to thank Fabio for his work with the England team and wish him every success in the future.”
On Sunday Fabio stated that,”I thought it was right that Terry should keep the captain’s armband, I have spoken to the FA chairman and I have said that in my opinion one cannot be punished until it is official and the court – a non-sport court, a civil court – had made a decision to decide if John Terry has done what he is accused of.”
England Under-21 head coach Stuart Pearce will be in charge for England’s friendly against the Netherlands at Wembley on 29 February.
