After a dispute with England's Football Association caused him to resign in February, Fabio Capello has landed a new gig.

The former coach of England's national team has agreed to coach the Russian national team, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

Russian Football Union deputy president Nikita Simonyan told a news outlet he expects Capello to sign the deal on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

"Today we decided to appoint Capello as our national team's new manager," Simonyan told ITAR-TASS news agency. "We expect him to come to Moscow in the nearest future to finalise the details of his contract and sign it."
Capello, 66, managed England for just more than three years before stepping down after the FA removed John Terry as captain of the team. In his final head at the helm of England, Capello went 5-3-0 in 2011.
