Capello confident of achieving World Cup glory
New England manager Fabio Capello is convinced he can guide the national side to World Cup victory.
The 61-year-old Italian will be officially unveiled tomorrow but the former AC Milan, Juventus, Roma and Real Madrid coach has already outlined his vision.
'My life could have been easy but I need a challenge - and the biggest challenge in football is to lift England to the stars,' he told the News of the World.
'I will win the World Cup. If I didn't think that, I would not have taken the job. I would have continued playing golf.
'I will do everything I can to make the England team successful.'
Capello, meanwhile, has confirmed he will be putting aside his existing media commitments in order to concentrate fully on his new job as England coach.
He has been doing various media work since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, including writing a column every Sunday with Spanish sports newspaper Marca and being a pundit for Italian television station RAI.
However, in his Marca column on Sunday, Capello admitted he would drop his media work in order to devote all his attention to his new role with England.
'When I committed to Marca it was under the condition that I could leave if I signed for a team,' Capello wrote.
'Fortunately for me this moment has arrived and tomorrow I will be presented by the English FA. From now on I am going to concentrate on this new task 100% as I have always done when I have been coach of a team.
'Now I am responsible for a national team which will need my complete dedication, and the moment has arrived to stop this work just as I will do with Italian television.
'On RAI I have been commentating on games during this season, but now I will stop working with the media because I want to be fully concentrated on this new challenge with the England national side.'
The former AC Milan, Roma and Juventus boss added: 'It will not be easy this new journey with England, but I am sure that it will be exciting.
'Tomorrow I will be presented as the England coach and I will start a new challenge in my career as coach. Now what I hope is to return this confidence and that England will soon be once more among the best teams in the world.'
In a farewell to the Marca readers, Capello said: 'I hope that you all enjoy plenty of footballing success, although from now on, everyone must understand that my priority will be the England national team.
'For this, the English national team comes first in my hopes for the future although I am sure that Spanish football has a bright future.'
