Former England manager
Fabio Capello was expected in Moscow this week for talks about
coaching Russia, local media reported on Wednesday.
Several outlets said Capello, who quit as England boss in
February, would arrive on Thursday to negotiate with the Russian
Football Union (RFU) about the vacant position.
Dutchman Dick Advocaat's contract expired following Russia's
failure to reach the quarter-finals at Euro 2012 last month.
Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko, who is also a member
of FIFA's executive board, said on Wednesday the RFU would name
a new national team coach by July 20.
The RFU also needs a new president after Sergei Fursenko
resigned last week following Russia's disappointing results in
Poland and Ukraine.
Capello visited Moscow last November when rumours linked the
66-year-old Italian with the coaching role at wealthy Russian
club Anzhi Makhachkala.
At the time, Capello said: "I came to Moscow to see the
ballet at the Bolshoi Theatre, not for football."
