Fabio Capello: Denied having offer from Chelsea

Fabio Capello has rejected reports that he has been approached about becoming the next manager of Chelsea.

Reports over the weekend suggested Russia coach Capello had been sounded about replacing Rafa Benitez at Stamford Bridge.

Benitez's future as manager has been the subject of intense speculation over the last few days after his outburst against the club and the club's fans following last week's FA Cup win at Middlesbrough.

A number of names have been linked with the Chelsea post in the wake of Benitez's criticism, with former England boss Capello the latest candidate to emerge on the radar.

However, Capello insists he has received no offer from Chelsea and is focused on leading Russia to the 2014 World Cup finald.

"I am only thinking about reaching the World Cup with Russia," Capello told Italian radio. "At the moment, I am not thinking about anything else.

"I have received no offer."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
