Italian tax men target England manager
ENGLAND manager Fabio Capello last night attempted to reassure the Football Association after it emerged he is facing an Italian tax inquiry.
Payments made to Capello during his time at Juventus between 2004 and 2006 are being analysed as part of a wide-ranging investigation into the finances of major figures in Italy. Confirmation of the investigation sparked immediate fears that Capello, who has yet to complete a fortnight as Steve McClaren's successor, could be dragged into a major scandal, causing huge embarrassment for the FA.
Instead, Soho Square officials appeared relaxed about the matter, accepting at face value comments from the 61-year-old that he has nothing to fear.
"With my advisors, I have always endeavoured to conduct my financial business with integrity," said Capello.
"I have assured the Football Association today that my finances are in order and that I am not aware of any matters which would be of concern."
