Wembley boss is not too happy over the Bernabeu manager’s job claims.
England manager Fabio Capello accused Jose Mourinho of disrespect after claiming the ‘Special One’ was the Football Association’s first choice to replace Steve McClaren.
The Real Madrid boss claimed he was only ‘hours’ away from accepting the England job but had a change of heart and the FA plumped for the Italian instead.
Capello says he does not care if Mourinho was approached but said the former Chelsea manager should show more respect.
“I don’t speak about the relationship with the other clubs, for respect for other managers,” said Capello.
“I don’t like to speak about my relationship with the clubs, with other people. These are my personal secrets.
“I’ll never tell you about what really happened in my career.
“Every time a club or a different national team decides to choose a manager, they decide to speak with a lot of managers. It’s normal. It’s not different.
“This is a question for the chairman that chose me, not a question for me.”
The FA was also quick to dismiss Mourinho’s claim that he was close to becoming England manager.
“Fabio was our first choice for England manager,” said a spokesman for the FA.
“We have made that clear from the outset.”
