Capello named coach of Real Madrid
MADRID, July 5 (Reuters) Fabio Capello was named the new coach of Real Madrid today, a day after resigning from Italian champions Juventus.
The 60-year-old Italian, who steered Juve to back-to-back league titles in his two-year spell at the club, will return to Real 10 years after his first stint with the Primera Liga side.
Capello first joined Real in 1996 after a contractual dispute with AC Milan and led the Spaniards to the league title in his only season at the club before deciding to return to Milan.
Real said that Capello would be presented offcially to the media at 1530 ist tomorrow.
His former club Juventus are at the core of a match-fixing scandal in Italy and could be relegated if a sports tribunal finds against the club.
