Fabio Capello has resigned as coach of Juventus, the club have confirmed.

The news came as a prosecutor called for the Italian champions to be demoted to Serie C at a sport tribunal investigating match-fixing claims.

New Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has already revealed that he hoped Capello will return to the Spanish club, where he won the championship in 1997.

Capello, 60, claimed two straight titles at Juve, although those honours may be taken away from the club, depending on the outcome of the inquiry.

“Juventus Football Club, took note of Fabio Capello’s choices, accept his resignation and thank him for the job done,” read a club statement.
