Real Madrid fires coach Fabio Capello

Spanish league champion Real Madrid has fired coach Fabio Capello.

Madrid's sports director Pedrag Mijatovic said the decision, which was widely expected, was made at a board meeting Thursday.

He said the club was considering several candidates to replace the Italian coach but would not give any names.

Speculation has been rampant in recent weeks that the club would get rid of Capello, even though the Italian coach led Madrid to the league championship earlier this month, ending a four-year trophy drought.

The meeting came as Capello was on holiday abroad.
