London, Sep 5 (ANI): Fabio Capello will be England football team's manager even after next year's World Cup finals.

There are fears that he will quit as boss if England fails to reach the quarterfinals. But the Italian has a 6 million pound-a-year deal with the Football Association until 2012.

"The target is to respect my full contract. It ends in 2012 and I want to respect it.

It is not only a matter for me but also for the FA," The Sun quoted Capello, as saying.

Capello has led England to the brink of World Cup qualification with seven straight wins.

But after last month's 2-2 friendly draw in Holland, the Three Lions chief has warned that there can be no more slip-ups against Slovenia today.

"We have defended very well in all of the competitive games but in the friendly matches we have been so-so. We have made mistakes and I have discussed this matter with the team," he said.

Skipper John Terry revealed: "The manager is very strong-minded and if he sees a mistake he will sit there for 30 or 40 minutes in the team meeting until the message is clear." (ANI)
