    Capello will begin work in the post on Monday 7 January. He has signed a four-and-a-half year contract.

    The appointment was made following discussions with FA Chief Executive Brian Barwick and Director of Football Development Sir Trevor Brooking at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday. This was then ratified unanimously by the FA Board on Thursday.

    Capello has vast experience as a coach at the top level of the game. His 16-year managerial career has encompassed spells at AC Milan, Real Madrid, AS Roma and Juventus. In total, Capello has won nine League titles in Italy and Spain as well as lifting the European Cup with Milan in 1994.

    Brian Barwick said: "I am delighted that Fabio Capello has agreed to become England Manager. When we set out to recruit the new manager, we said we were committed to appointing a world-class candidate. In Fabio Capello we have that man.

    "Fabio is a winner. His record over the last two decades speaks for itself. At every club he has managed, Fabio has won the League title and Trevor and I were left in no doubt of his passion and commitment to bring that success to the England team."

    Sir Trevor Brooking added: "Fabio Capello is widely recognised as one of the world's finest coaches. He has achieved huge success wherever he has worked and has the respect of everyone in football.

    "Fabio will have the full support of The FA and its coaching set-up. We are excited about working with him over the coming years as we focus on qualification for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa."

    Capello’s backroom staff will consist of assistants Franco Baldini and Italo Galbiati, goalkeeping coach Franco Tancredi, and fitness coach Massimo Neri. He will also discuss with Sir Trevor Brooking how to integrate an English presence into the coaching set-up.

    Capello enjoyed a successful playing career as a midfielder with Roma, Juventus and Milan, winning 32 caps for Italy. He began his coaching career with Milan graduating to take charge of the first team in 1991. He brought huge success to the club winning four Serie A titles in five seasons and overseeing European Cup success with a 4-0 Final victory over Barcelona in 1994.

    A season at Real Madrid followed where the team won La Liga. After a brief return to Milan, Capello joined Roma. The Serie A title was secured in 2001 and Capello was recruited by Juventus in 2004 where he won Serie A in both 2005 and 2006. Capello spent last season back at Real Madrid, once again winning the League.

    I'm sure he'll succeed more than McLaren to say the least.

    He is the best man for the job. However while he is at the helm, the FA should start looking at why English managers are so pathetic.

    Hell, Lee Stewart would have more success as England Manager than McLaren. (Lee would select only United players, all wearing Captain Armbands.)

    I thought you english thought the downfall of the English NT was due to the amount of foreigners. So now they hire a foreign manager? Hooray for short-term!

    Unfortunately, hiring another English manager would bring us absolutely nothing. We may as well of kept McLaren. There are no English managers capable.

    I don't even care if the manager is English or not. It was never an issue to me.

    dont expect to see great free flowing attacking football.

    the press are really going to have a go at him for that, but i see him shutting them up by winning the world cup.

    will defenetly be a success.

    Looks like the press are already twisting his wrist, sort of like I twisted my wrist jerking off to the 2girls1cup video.

    I don't know if it's possible for England's football to get any more boring, but Capello will sure as hell try.

    Actually, barring 2 or maybe 3 games(Aus, USA and Fra), they weren;t that boring(Gha, Ger, Ukr, Cze). Although I must say I agree that "boring" is always a good (and historically, in many other sports as well, successful) weapon to have in the back pocked to employ at will. I just don;t think he'll win boring......

    I also get the feeling that they will take this guy more seriously than the recent past.

    England would win nothing with a team of Man Utd players. The international refs won't give in to their antics. Better off having Millwall represent us. :-)
