Former Real Madrid, Juventus, England, AC Milan and Roma coach Fabio Capello has confirmed his retirement from coaching after he ruled himself out of taking the job with the Italian nation team.

Following his nine months spell with the Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning, Capello announced that he will end his career from football management and focus on his role as a commentator in Italy and the upcoming World Cup.

“I’ve already done time with England and Russia and my last job was this one in China at Jiangsu Suning. I wanted to give it another go at coaching a club and we managed to stay up despite the fact they were bottom when I took over and I’m happy with how it went. Now I’m going to focus on punditry, which is a role you always win in.” (Don’t forget to check 12BET for more Soccer Betting Tips)

To sum it up, the 71-year-old Italian has won three Serie A titles, twice in La Liga and guided England to qualification for the 2010 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Italy is still looking a replacement to Gian Piero Ventura, who was sacked after the national team failed to qualify for the World Cup.

However, Capello is backing former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini for the role to guide a challenging Italy team. (Sign Up now for more updated sports news and events in 12BET Sportsbook)

“Roberto is a coach of experience who has travelled the world. His experience will help him build relations with the players, but the national team lack talent. We are good coaches when we have good players. It is difficult to do well with mediocre players. At the moment Italian football is missing great players that can make the difference, there are no leaders. In Serie A there is little quality. You learn from the best but if the best are bought by the strongest foreign clubs, Italian football doesn’t have good teachers, good players from whom to learn.”
