Rome - Fabio Capello has announced his retirement from coaching.

The former AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma and Juventus coach told RAI state radio that he's not interested in the vacant post with Italy's national team.

The 71-year-old Capello left as coach of Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last month just three matches into the season

"I've already had experiences with the England and Russia national teams," Capello said. "I wanted to coach a club once more and Jiangsu was my last football job.

"I did everything that I wanted to. I'm pleased with what I did and now I'll enjoy being an analyst. You always win in that role."

Capello enjoyed his most successful spell while at Milan, guiding the Rossoneri to four Serie A titles and the 1994 Champions League trophy.
