Muller: Too many alpha males in England team

GERMANY star Thomas Muller has claimed England have “too many chiefs and not enough Indians” to be a successful team.

As the inquest continues into England’s dismal showing in South Africa’s World Cup and debate rages over whether Fabio Capello should continue in his job, Germany are preparing for Saturday’s quarter-final showdown with Argentina in a state of quiet satisfaction.

Muller said: “England have so many top stars in their squad that they will always be part and parcel of the international football scene. But there are so many alpha males.

“It is difficult to have so many alpha males and have them row in the same direction.”
