Fabio Capello

The Italian Fabio Capello has signed a two-year deal with the Russian Football Union and so has become the head coach of the Russian national team.

      The 66-year-old Capello is one of the most successful coaches, after winning five Serie A titles with AC Milan and Roma as well as two Spanish crowns with Real Madrid and the UEFA Champions League with AC Milan.

      The two-year agreement, with an option to prolong it for another couple of years, will reportedly bring the Italian around $12mln, which makes him the highest-paid football coach in the world.

      Capello will take charge in time for Russia's friendly match against Ivory Coast on August 15, which will be followed by World Cup qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Israel in September.

      In his first interview as the head coach, Fabio Capello expressed his honor to be at the helm of the Russian team. He added that the team had a "huge potential" and defined a goal of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

      Capello succeded the former head coach Dick Advocaat, who left the team to join PSV Eindhoven. As opposed to previous foreign coaches, Capello is expected to live in Russia on continuing basis.
