Fabio Capello signed a two-year
contract with the Russian Football Union (RFU) to become
Russia's new coach on Thursday.
The 66-year-old Italian, who quit as England manager in
February, replaces Dutchman Dick Advocaat, whose tenure ended
with Russia's group-stage exit from Euro 2012.
"I'm very proud to be the coach of the Russian national
team. Russia have great potential. I will live and work in
Moscow," Capello told a news conference.
The contract's financial details were not disclosed but
local media reported Capello would earn up to 10 million euros a
