Capello not in talks with Chelsea: son

Former England coach Fabio Capello is not in talks with Champions League finalists Chelsea, his son said Friday.

"Unfortunately, these are just wonderful inventions by newspapers," Pierfilippo Capello, who is also his father's lawyer, was quoted as saying by calciomercatoweb.com on various press reports linking Capello to Chelsea.

Capello resigned as England boss in February after criticising the Football Association for stripping John Terry of the captaincy for allegedly racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand during a match. Terry strongly denies the charges.

The Italian previously won everything in club football in spells as coach of AC Milan, Roma and Juventus while he twice won the Spanish title in two separate one-year spells as Real Madrid boss.

Capello's compatriot Roberto Di Matteo is currently the interim coach of Chelsea, who play Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on Saturday.

Di Matteo took over at Stamford Bridge just 10 weeks ago following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas and has already overseen a string of notable performances including an unforgettable semi-final win over Barcelona.

Despite overseeing a rebound in Chelsea's fortunes, which included an FA Cup victory as well as their passage to the Champions League final, Di Matteo has yet to be given any assurances about his long-term future at Chelsea.

Chelsea say no decision on a long-term successor to Villas-Boas will be taken until the season has ended -- and Di Matteo insists he is happy to wait.

If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea.
