Capello lawyers to speak to prosecutors
England manager to be represented at prosecutors meeting next week
Fabio Capello lawyers’ are to appear before prosecutors investigating tax
evasion allegations next week.
The England manager is being investigated for alleged tax fraud over earnings
from the time when he was AS Roma’s coach, between 1999 and 2004,
Capello had been asked to appear in person before the prosecutors this coming
Tuesday (27 May), but will now merely be represented.
‘He will not come, his lawyers will present a statement. It’s his right to do
this, there is nothing negative about it,’ said Marco Gianoglio, one of the
prosecutors working on the case.
Capello has insisted that his tax affairs are in order. The FA has said the
inquiries are merely part of a series into high-profile and wealthy Italians by
the government there.
