Fabio Capello on Tottenham radar

Published 2 Comments

Former England manager Fabio Capello is on Tottenham Hotspur's managerial hit-list should current boss Andre Villas-Boas be sacked, according to the Daily Mail.

Villas-Boas has come under intense criticism following his side's display in a 6-0 humiliation at the hands of a rampant Manchester City last weekend, and Capello is a shock name mentioned in discussions surrounding his potential successor.

Capello meanwhile has a proven track record at both club and international level, and he recently guided Russia to the World Cup finals.

The Russian FA are hopeful however that he will put pen to paper on a new four year contract, which would end any Tottenham hopes of bringing Capello to the Premier League.

Daniel Levy and other Spurs bosses are said to be growing increasingly impatient with  36-year old Villas-Boas, who spent £110 million on new arrivals in the summer following Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid.

Villas-Boas brought in the likes of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela have so far failed to impress, and if Spurs are to live up to their high expectations following AVB's summer spending spree, they will have to improve on a record of just one goal in their last six matches.

Despite the increasing pressure building on the Portuguese manager, speculation of him getting the sack seems premature, and he will be hoping that his side can ease the pressure with a win at home to Manchester United this afternoon.
