FA to decide on Capello
London - Fabio Capello said on Monday he wants to continue as England manager but revealed he had been told by the Football Association that they would need two weeks to decide whether to keep him in the post.
Despite being savaged by the media in the wake of England's 4-1 thrashing by Germany in Sunday's World Cup Last 16 match, 64-year-old Capello said he wanted to see out a contract that runs until Euro 2012.
"I have a contract and I refused a lot of opportunities to be the manager of important clubs because I want to stay here," Capello told reporters.
"I like this job. I like to be the England manager."
Capello said the FA had to decide whether they still wanted him in the wake of England's heaviest defeat in a World Cup and admitted he had not won an immediate vote of confidence from Sir Dave Richards, the chairperson of Club England.
"I spoke this morning with Sir Dave," Capello added. "He told me that he needs two weeks time to decide. I said that I can be, next season, the manager of England but they have to decide. Do I want to stay on? Absolutely."
