LONDON, September 17 – England manager Fabio Capello said he will coach no other sides, including his native Italy, after his contract with the Football Association ends, a report said Thursday.FABIO_CAPELLOCapello, 63, has helped England qualify for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa and is one year into a four-year contract with the FA.

And he told The Sun: "I wear the England shirt. The England team will be the last football side I coach."

Asked whether he still has ambitions to manage Italy, Capello said: "No, it simply does not interest me."

England have often fallen at the quarter-final stage of international competitions in the last 20 years, but Italian Capello said last week he wants the side to go all the way to the July 11 final.

"Playing in the final would be success," he said Sunday. "For now, playing in it will do, rather than winning it. But if people are asking me what my aspiration is, then it is to reach the final."
