London, Jan 31(ANI): Manager Fabio Capello has revealed that he would like to stay on as England coach until after the 2012 European Championship, which is to be co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine.

Capello admits that he would not be interested in any other job, loves living in London and enjoys his relationship with the players and the Premier League managers.

"I hope to still be here with England in 2012. It depends on the FA and results in the World Cup, of course, but I am really happy. I like my job. I like being England manager and I hope that after the World Cup finals I will still be manager for Euro 2012. Why not?" Express quoted Capello, as saying.

"I don't think about not being England manager. The football in England is exciting. The Premier League is good and I enjoy working with the English players," he added.

The 63-year-old, who is currently recovering from a knee replacement surgery, further said that he is eager to get going again.

"I have a good feeling with the players, the managers and the FA. I am comfortable here in England and with this job. When you have the confidence of the people you work with that is also important - the players, my staff, the supporters. It is not just about managing the team. It is everything," Capello said.

"I like living in London and so does my wife. I am happy here and I hope to be the England manager for the European Championships," he added. (ANI)
