Fabio Capello has resigned as England manager after a meeting with FA chairman David Bernstein.
The Football Association has confirmed that the England manager, Fabio Capello, has resigned.
Capello quit after an hour-long meeting with the FA chairman, David Bernstein, and the general secretary, Alex Horne, at Wembley Stadium, the association said in a statement on its website.
Their discussions centred on Capello's comments in an Italian media interview on the FA board's decision to sack John Terry as the England captain.
Capello resignation was accepted and he will leave the post of England manager with immediate effect.
Bernstein said: "I would like to stress that during today's meeting and throughout his time as England Manager, Fabio has conducted himself in an extremely professional manner. We have accepted Fabio's resignation, agreeing this is the right decision. We would like to thank Fabio for his work with the England team and wish him every success in the future."
The FA will hold a news conference with Bernstein and the England management team at Wembley on Thursday.
