Capello may face charges in corruption probe

England manager Fabio Capello is facing possible criminal charges in Italy for allegedly withholding information in a corruption trial.

Capello was a witness in the trial of six men accused of conspiring to control transfers by intimidating players into signing for a sports management firm.

His lawyers say they are confident that he gave all the information required of him during the trial.

The case is unconnected to a previous investigation into Capello's tax affairs.
