English Soccer Coach Will Not Write Memoir, Not Even For A Million Pounds

fabio.pngAccording to The Sun (an ever reliable British tabloid) English soccer coach Fabio Capello has refused an offer of 1 million pounds to write a memoir about the team’s 2010 World Cup Campaign.

According to The Sun, Creative Artists Agency’s Charlie Stillitano approached Capello (pictured) with the offer, but Capello turned it down. A “close friend” of Capello told The Sun that CAA kept pressing, and that Capello held his firm decision even after England was eliminated from the World Cup on Sunday.

Good for him. Crazy as it may seem, some people just don’t want to write tell-all memoirs.
