Russia Fans Start Fund-Raising Campaign To Buy Fabio Capello Out Of His Contract

Russia manager Fabio Capello is one of the highest paid managers in the game, having earned a cool £6.6 million in 2014.

So, with a group of Russian supporters deciding to band together in a campaign to buy the Italian out of his contract… they may face an uphill task.

It’s reported that the campaigners will need to raise an estimated sum of 21.4 million euros ($24.2 million) to get rid of the former England manager.

However, for many it is a price worth paying as recent performances from the national team have been painful at best.

And Capello’s cause wasn’t helped after his side lost 1-0 at home to group leaders Austria in Euro 2016 qualifying at the weekend.

Fans are using in order to gain support and end the Italian’s regime.

The website even states “the vast majority of the country`s football lovers want Capello to step down.”

The 68-year-old was also widely criticised after Russia’s dismal showing at last year’s World Cup in Brazil, where they failed to win a game and were knocked out at the group stage.
