London:

Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday said he was "sorry to see Fabio go." Former England manager Fabio Capello resigned from his duties, angry that he had not been consulted by the FA over its decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.

Weighing on the matter, Cameron said Capello was a capable manager but he did not share his opinion on Terry's removal.  "I think he was a good coach and a good man. I don't think he was right about the John Terry issue. You can't be captain with that question mark that needs to be answered," Cameron said during a visit to Sweden.

Cameron however said he would refrain from predicting a successor. "The day when the Prime Minister picks the England coach will be a very bad day for football but I am sure we will find someone really good and I am sure that we will play well when the time comes."
