Hello, Capello [updated]
Amid speculation that Tottenham was trying to land former Milan/Juventus/Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello, these gems are appearing in the London papers this morning:
From the Times: "Capello was in London with his lawyer son, Pier Filippo, to meet representatives of the United States Soccer Federation..."
And in the Sun, Capello was quoted as saying: "I came to London because two weeks ago I agreed to meet the chairman and manager of the US national team who wanted my advice on a number of issues. We had lunch for three hours at the Hilton Hotel."
No other details were revealed. However, I do know that USSF President Sunil Gulati was in Sweden with the national team Wednesday and may very well have stopped in London on his way home to New York. Perhaps Capello is the technical director that Gulati has been pursuing? Or maybe it was just a friendly informal chat?
UPDATE: I just received this response from Sunil:
"I can confirm that Bob Bradley and I met yesterday with Fabio Capello. We had a good chat about international and American soccer. I will not comment further about the contents of our meeting."
