Tuesday evening brings some big news in the shape of new management in French giants Paris Saint-Germain. Sky Italia, who are the Italian version of Sky Sports, are claiming that PSG are set to announce that former England Manager Fabio Capello will become their new Manager on a 1-year deal. Even more astonishing is the fact that they are stating that Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger will take over from Capello in 2014 in a pre-agreement.
In the world of football, this news is big. 67-year-old Italian Capello is the current manager of the Russian National side and it has come with great shock that he is set to be confirmed as the PSG manager. The Russian FA are set to recieve around £2 million in compensation for the deal.
Allegedly the report goes on to state that current Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has signed an agreement to take over from Capello's temporary 1-year contract when it finishes in 2014, thus bringing us the most shocking part of this story. Wenger was thought to be busy re-building his Arsenal squad in order to compete for the Premier League title this season and the thought of him leaving is astounding.
Capello endured a controversial and inconsistent time as England Manager but has since had success with Russia.
