Fabio Capello´s appointment as England manager has been approved by the FA board and the Italian is now set to sign a contract worth an astonishing £6.5million a year.

Final discussions on the details of Capello´s contract will take place on Friday, but sources close to the FA board say they have approved a deal worth £4million annually - after tax.

That will place Capello´s earnings on a par with England captain John Terry´s £130,000-a-week, and shows the FA are willing to spend big to secure the ´world-class´ coach they have been looking for.
