SkyBet make Fabio Capello 8/13 to still be in charge for England’s next game when they entertain Hungary on August 11 (6/5 to not be).
Fabio Capello has revealed a decision on his England future will be made in the next two weeks.
The Italian’s position is under major scrutiny following a disastrous World Cup campaign that culminated in a 4-1 hammering by Germany on Sunday.
Capello met with Club England chairman Sir David Richards on Monday morning and later told reporters he still wishes to see out the four-and-a-half year contract he penned in January 2008.
He said: “I spoke this morning with Sir Dave Richards and he told me that he needs two weeks to decide.
“I said I can be coach for the next qualification (for Euro 2012), but they have to decide.
“I’ve refused a lot of opportunities to be manager of some important clubs because I’d like to stay here. I like this job and I want to be England manager.”
Team England managing director Adrian Bevington then stepped in to say Richards’ comments about needing two weeks did not mean Capello was set to be sacked.
“We’re all very clear that Fabio is under contract with the FA until the 2012 European Championships. Nothing has changed in that respected,” he said.
“Obviously everyone’s disappointed because of the fact we’ve gone out of the World Cup in a manner that everyone in the room, everyone back in England, and all the fans who have travelled are all frustrated and disappointed with, so it makes perfect sense for us to go back to London, take stock of the situation and reflect fully on the tournament and what we can take from it and speak to Fabio again from there.
“I don’t think there’s anything more sinister in it beyond that. We just want to make sure that we show a common sense approach rather than making any snap, knee-jerk reactions within 24 hours of a very disappointing result.”
