The son of former England boss Fabio Capello has moved to distance his father from the Chelsea manager's position.

According to reports on Friday, the Italian has formed the Stamford Bridge hierarchy that he is interested in taking the full-time position, which was relinquished by Andre Villas-Boas in March.

Roberto di Matteo has performed expertly since being named as Villas-Boas' replacement on a temporary basis but, it would appear, will not be given the job permanently.

Capello has reportedly been monitoring the Chelsea situation, and has told Roman Abramovich that he would consider a return to management with the Blues.

But Pierfilippo Capello has appeared to dismiss the chances of Fabio taking the Chelsea job, while he revealed that his father had been approached by Chinese club Guangzhou, who appointed Marcello Lippi on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, these are just wonderful inventions by newspapers," Pierfilippo told TuttoMercato.

"A future in China the same as [Marcello] Lippi? My father was already close to the same club [Guangzhou], then it all came to nothing.

"[But] any possibility cannot be excluded, as long as the project is successful and exciting."

Capello has also been linked with the Liverpool managerial post, following the sacking of Kenny Dalglish on Wednesday.
