Some interesting tidbits on newly hired England national team manager Fabio Capello:
Nine league titles in 16 seasons with four clubs – an even better pedigree than Steve McClaren. But only once, in 1994, has Capello won the Champions League.
He's a proven winner. He's also brutally honest...
Capello could find employment as the Government’s obesity tsar if results go badly. “Aren’t you ashamed of being so fat?” Capello asked Ronaldo while in charge of Real in January. The Brazil striker waddled off to AC Milan.
And he doesn't mind engaging in verbal fisticuffs...
Capello fought with Paolo Di Canio during AC Milan’s tour to China in 1996 after the former West Ham United forward told him not to take the games so seriously. “Your face looks like a penis,” Capello said.
This is precisely what England needs. Don't listen to the xenophobic douchebags who think England should have an English manager. There are no good English managers!
