Sports Pic Of The Day – Capello Quits

Source: Irish Daily Mail

Fabio Capello last night sensationally resigned as England manager, which also coincided with Harry Redknapp being acquitted of tax evasion charges. This clears the way for Redknapp to succeed the Italian at Wembley.

Capello’s resignation came after an hour-long meeting with English FA chairman David Bernstein in which is became clear that the manager felt the decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy had rendered his position untenable.

The FA are expected to hold a press conference at 12pm today where more details should emerge about the sensational resignation.
