England Soccer Coach Fabio Capello Quits
England soccer coach Fabio Capello quit the post, just hours after his possible successor, Tottenham's Harry Redknapp, was cleared of tax evasion charges.
Capello was on the job four years and left after a four hour meeting with Football Association executives.
"We have accepted Fabio's resignation, agreeing this is the right decision," FA chairman David Bernstein said. "We would like to thank Fabio for his work with the England team and wish him every success in the future."
The FA reportedly went around Capello to strip John Terry of England's captaincy last week, angering the coach.
Capello, ex-coach at Real Madrid and AC Milan, was criticized for England's poor play in South Africa in 2010 when it fell to Germany 4-1 in the second round.
He was 28-6-8 as England's coach, leaving some to wonder if someone better is available to coach the team, however.
"The question everyone is asking, fans and players, where do we go from here?" England midfielder Jack Wilshere wrote on Twitter. "Euro's is just around the corner and we have no manager?!?"
