Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has distanced the club from reports linking former England manager Fabio Capello with a move to the San Siro.

The aforementioned Italian resigned as England manager on Wednesday following a lengthy meeting with FA chairman David Bernstein and despite suggesting during his tenure the post would be his final in football before retirement; Capello appears to remain a man in demand.

In the immediate aftermath of Capello's decision to end his four year tenure with the national side, in protestation over the FA's handling of John Terry's deposition of England captain, Inter Milan, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri, were associated with the Italian, however the club will be keeping faith with their fourth coach since Jose Mourinho's departure in 2010.

In a statement on Inter's official website, as published by, Moratti said: "The theories reported by the media regarding a possible change of management, either now or at the end of the season, are entirely without foundation,"

"The latest rumour, regarding Fabio Capello's arrival at Inter, is equally unfounded."

n a press conference at Wembley on Thursday, FA chairman David Bernstein confirmed Stuart Pearce would take charge of England's friendly against Holland at the end of the February following their decision to accept Capello's resignation.
