Capello: Moscow trip was for ballet
Saturday 26 November 2011
Fabio Capello denied last night that his trip to Moscow this week had anything to do with football after local media reported he had arrived in the Russian capital to negotiate a contract with wealthy club Anzhi Makhachkala.
"I came to Moscow to see the ballet at the Bolshoi Theatre, not for football," the England manager , who leaves his job next year, said. "I was invited here and just couldn't turn it down."
