Russia: Capello holds onto Russian national team job... for now!

Russian Federation, Moscow
June 24, 2015 at 20:18 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russia's international football team coach Fabio Capello could still keep his job after First Vice-President of the Russian Football Union announced the organisation will conduct further negotiations with the Italian, while speaking at a press conference in Moscow on Wednesday.

Capello's position has come under increased scrutiny, with many expecting his firing to be announced at Wednesday's press conference. His position is far from assured though with Simonyan taking the opportunity to list potential replacements including Oleg Kononov, Yuri Semin, Leonid Slutsky and Aleksandr Borodyuk.

Questions were raised over Capello's future after Russia's disappointing 2014 World Cup in Brazil when the team failed to make it out of the tournaments group stages. The pressure was then heaped on the Italian coach after Russia lost a goal to nil again Austria on June 14.
