Tottenham spokesman: We snubbed an offer from Capello

A spokesman for Spurs said: “The club has been approached by agents of various top coaches.

“I can confirm we were approached by someone claiming to represent Fabio Capello. They were told politely but in no uncertain terms that we did not wish to meet him and that we are not about to change the manager.

“He should be under no illusions about that and we have no idea why he was in London.”
