Fabio Capello: Thought to be on PSG's radar

Fabio Capello's son and lawyer, Pierfilippo, has moved further to play down the link between his father and the Paris Saint-Germain job.

Speculation was rife after the former England boss was spotted meeting PSG Sport Director Leonardo in Paris.

However, after Capello himself denied the any talks had taken place, Pierfilippo reiterated his father's stance, insisting it was nothing more than a meeting of friends.

"It was a meeting planned a long time ago," Pierfilippo told L'Equipe

"He knows Leonardo for 15 years, they are just friends, and talked about players and other things.
