Capello Rejects PSG's Offer

PSG have seemingly failed in their bid to lure Russia coach, Fabio Capello, to the Parc des Princes.

The French champions had already agreed to pay the €3 million release clause in Capello’s contract with the Russian Football Federation, to free him from his current job two years early.

But talks between PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi and Capello’s son and agent Pierfilippo ran aground on Wednesday with no deal reached.

The stumbling block was the duration of the contract on offer- one year with the option to renew-  as well as Russia’s insistence that Capello see out a notice period before quitting his current job.

Capello has now travelled to Brazil to watch the Confederations Cup, with only slim chances of PSG rekindling their pursuit of him.

The French club is growing increasingly desperate in its attempt to find a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who is determined to leave for Real Madrid.

Capello had been their back-up plan, after they had missed out on a who’s who of top European coaches.

The long-term goal is to install Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger at the Parc des Princes.

But PSG need a new coach now, unless they manage to force Ancelotti to stay. And it seems as if despite the unlimited financial resources they have at their disposal, a suitable new coach is hard to come by.
