Capello keen to do it his way
England coach Fabio Capello has sought the advice of fellow managers ahead of this summer’s World Cup but insists he will ultimately rely on “my decisions and style.”
Despite enjoying plenty of success at club level, South Africa will be his first experience of being in charge of a team at football’s biggest tournament.
The Italian is full of pride at leading England, who held their first training session at their Bafokeng Sports Centre base today, although he is aware of the massive expectation levels resting on his shoulders.
Capello said: “For me it will be a new experience to be a manager at this famous tournament.
“As a club manager, I took my teams into important tournaments but, even with the likes of Real Madrid and AC Milan, we were representing just one city.
