Capello signs 2-year contract as Russia coach

Former England coach Fabio Capello has signed a two-year contract to guide Russia's national team through to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Capello announced the move Thursday at a news conference in which he acknowledged his inability to speak Russian but said he would work to overcome it.
He replaces Dick Advocaat, who resigned after Russia failed to make it past the group stage at the European Championship last month.
Capello had been unemployed since stepping down as England coach in February after four years in charge to protest interference in team affairs from the country's Football Association.
Capello also previously coached Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
