Prosecutor Takes Fabio Capello To Court
( SkyNews ) - A prosecutor in Rome has said he will bring a case against England coach Fabio Capello for withholding information.
The man in charge of football in England has been giving evidence at the Italian trial of six men accused fostering unfair competition through threats or violence while part of the Gea World sports agency.
The prosecutor's case is also said to name former Juventus director Antonio Giraudo, who is also giving evidence at the trial.
Capello told a Rome court he had never been involved with player contracts while he was in Italy and had never heard of any players being put under pressure to sign agreements.
The England coach was in charge at Roma from 1999 to 2004.
But Italian journalist Nick Pisa has told Sky News the prosecutor became frustrated with Capello's evidence, after he answered many questions with "I can't remember" or "I don't know".
He said the prosecutor then told reporters outside the court he would pursue Capello for being misleading.
If enough evidence can be gathered to proceed to a full trial and Capello is found guilty - he faces the possibility of four years in jail.
The English boss is facing other legal troubles, with separate Italian investigations continuing into alleged tax evasion.
Two of the defendents in the Gea World case are former Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi and Davide Lippi, son of former Italy coach Marcello.
Moggi was involved in Italy's 2006 match-fixing affair and Capello worked under him at Juventus from 2004 to 2006.
Moggi was banned from football for fives years, while Capello was cleared of any wrongdoing.
