Capello denies FA criticism

Former England manager Fabio Capello has denied saying he was forced to resign after the Football Association "insulted" him and damaged his authority.

• Capello leaves England post
• Wilshere 'gutted' as Capello quits

Capello stepped down as manager of the Three Lions after meeting with the FA at Wembley on Wednesday, following a disagreement between the two parties about the decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy while a court case continues to hang over the Chelsea defender's head.

Capello had earlier spoken to an Italian TV station to express his disappointment with the decision, but has denied making strongly-worded comments to Italpresse after submitting his resignation.

Capello had been quoted as saying: "They really insulted me and damaged my authority. What really hit me and forced me to take this decision was the fact the much-vaunted Anglo-Saxon sense of justice, as they are the first to claim that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

"In Terry's case, they gravely offended me and damaged my authority at the head of the England side, effectively creating a problem for the squad.

"I have never tolerated certain crossing of lines, so it was easy for me to spot it and take my decision to leave."

However, Capello told ANSA: "I did not say anything and will not say anything. All statements attributed to me are false."
