Capella has managed Real Madrid twice, once from 1996 to 1997, and the again from 2006 to 2007. During his years at Madrid, Capella won two domestic titles and is regarded as one of the best managers in the world.


Capello has recently handed his resignation from Jiangsu Suning and made return to his previous job of pundit for Fox Sports in Italy.

Talking about the race to win the Champions League, Capello explained why Real Madrid are ahead of Barcelona in race to win Europe’s elite competition.

“I think both clubs are the favorites to win the title”, Capello said.


“If I had to pick one of them I’d say Real Madrid. It would be the third successive win for Zidane and unfortunately for the other contenders, Real Madrid have something more than the other clubs and that’s why I think they are the favorites to win the Champions League again.”
