Fabio Capello (-itˈfabjo kaˈpello; born 18 June 1946) is an Italian football manager and former player. He is the current manager of the England national football team.

Capello has the distinction of winning the domestic league title with every club he has coached throughout his career. In his first five seasons as a manager he won four Serie A titles with Milan, where he also won the 1993 94 UEFA Champions League, defeating Barcelona 4 0 in a memorable final. He then spent a year at Real Madrid, where he won the La Liga title at his first attempt, and in 2001 led Roma to their first league title in 18 years. Capello also won two titles at Juventus (which were later stripped after the Calciopoli scandal), and in 2006 returned to Real Madrid, where he won another La Liga title. Overall he has won a major league championship in seven (or nine, counting the two revoked titles with Juventus) of his 16 seasons as a coach, and is one of the few managers to claim championship victories in four major European cities: Milan, Madrid, Rome, and Turin.

After being appointed England manager in December 2007, Capello announced that the role would be the last of his career. Capello's contract with the Football Association came into effect on 7 January 2008, and was initially planned to run for two-and-a-half years; on 24 January 2008, Capello was named president of the League Managers Association, a customary role given to the English national coach. In May 2010 it was announced that Capello's contract had been extended to 2012, though Capello stated he would leave the post after Euro 2012
