    Fabio to stay on as England boss


    by ODN


    Fabio Capello has said he is more determined than ever to succeed with England after his future as team manager was secured.

    It follows a number of lacklustre performances at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and then a meeting of the Club England board and The FA main board.

    Club England Chairman Sir Dave Richards said: "We are all still extremely disappointed at our performance in South Africa, and we believed it was important that we took some time to reflect on everything in a calm and considered manner back in England. After fully discussing our performance we remain convinced that Fabio is the best man for the job."

    FA Board Acting Chairman Roger Burden said: "It is the right decision and will allow us now to rebuild for the future with Fabio leading us forward.

    England Manager Fabio Capello said: "I can assure the fans I am now fully focused on our European qualifying fixtures, starting with the friendly against Hungary in August.

    "We will look to introduce new players to give the team new energy and I will use all my experience to take England forward.

    "I am extremely proud to be the England Manager, it means so much to me and I am determined to succeed."
