Chelsea May Sign Capello as Interim Manager, Sunday People Says

Chelsea may sign former England soccer manager Fabio Capello to oversee the team until the end of the season, the Sunday People reported.

Current interim manager Rafael Benitez faces hostility from some Chelsea fans. Last week he criticized supporters for booing him and confirmed he will not be staying at the club beyond this season.

Owner Roman Abramovich may move to replace him sooner, the People said. Capello would be able to combine the short-term role with his post as coach of the Russian national team, the newspaper added without identifying its sources.
