After a career spanning six countries and countless titles both as a player and a coach, Fabio Capello announced his retirement.

The former AC Milan, Real Madrid, Roma and Juventus coach told RAI state radio that he is not interested in the open job with Italy’s national team.

The 71-year-old Capello left as coach of Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last month only three matches into the season. He signed an 18-month contract with the Nanjing club in June 2017, helping the 2016 league runner-up avoid relegation.

”I’ve already had experiences with the England and Russia national teams,” Capello said. ”I wanted to coach a club once more and Jiangsu was my last football job. I did everything that I wanted to. I’m pleased with what I did and now I’ll enjoy being an analyst. You always win in that role.”

Capello was most successful at Milan, guiding the Rossoneri to four Serie A titles and the 1994 Champions League trophy. He also won titles at Madrid and Roma, plus two Serie A titles at Juventus that were wiped out following the Calciopoli refereeing scandal.
