Even a month ago it was reported about a possible appointment and the beginning of June Fabio Capello commented about it:

“I like men with power and attitude and Capello believed in me.
‘You have nothing to prove, I know who you are and what you can, he said one of the first few days, and it gave me peace of mind.’ ”
