Ex England manager Fabio Capello wants to manage in the Premier League

FABIO Capello has expressed a desire to return to club management - in the Premier League.

The former England coach, who earned a reputation as one of the best club managers in the world during successful stints at AC Milan and Real Madrid, has already rejected offers from China and Russia.

The 65 year-old is looking for one final hurrah with a top European club before calling it a day, and says England is where his heart currently lies.

"At the end of my career, it would be interesting to find a team with big motivation to arrive at the top," he told The Times.

"England would be very interesting for me because I know very well the teams and the players and everything would be less difficult.

"It would be easier for me in England. And my English is not so bad."
