Capello dream is to coach England

Juventus coach Fabio Capello insists taking charge of the England national team is his ambition after he quits managing at club level.

Capello has been one of the names touted as replacing current England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson this summer.

"In the next three years I am thinking of stopping as a club coach," he told Italian newspaper L'Expresso.

"And then I would like for a dream I have always had inside me to come true - to manage England."

Portugal manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has admitted speaking to the Football Association about succeeeding Eriksson, who has announced he will quit after the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Last week the 57-year-old Brazilian denied having formal talks about the England job with the FA when he visited London.

But he told the Daily Star: "I had an informal meeting with the English federation. It is great my work and career has been recognised.

"Taking this job would be nothing to do with money. I have lots of ambition."

Scolari, who is out of contract with Portugal after the World Cup added: "I still have not decided my future. If we won the World Cup I might stay.

"I love football and like managing with a smile on my face. Working in England would be great. The atmosphere would be similar to Brazil because the national team is so important.

"England have excellent players but it should not all be about individuals. They have to be a unit.

"I am 57 years old and still have a lot of ambition in life. I feel I am still young and can do this job."
