Moscow: Russia`s national football team coach Fabio Capello is not going to cancel his contract as some media have suggested, the Russian Football Union (RFS) said.
"Capello has a contract with the Russian Football Union, and he has repeatedly said about how happy he is with the Russian football and that he intends to go ahead," RFS chief Nikolai Tolstykh told a local media on Wednesday, reports Xinhua.
Tolstykh added he was confident that Fabio Capello, 67, would take Russia to the World Cup final in Brazil in 2014.
