Capello's press conference: The key points

• Capello revealed he had wanted the England job 'for a long time', describing it as 'a dream come true'. • He said he would officially begin his role in January and his first task would be to meet the players and coaches of the English leagues. • He said he was 'convinced' England could be moulded into a team capable of going 'right to the top'. • He insisted his £6.5million-a-year contract meant far less to him than being successful. • He promised to adhere to 'a really strict routine' to improve his English sufficiently to communicate with his players before his first game in charge. • He said he would discuss with the players why they feel England have underperformed in recent years but warned 'wearing the England shirt should be a matter of pride'. •  He refused to be drawn into the debate about whether a foreigner should have been appointed as England boss ahead of an Englishman, but expressed his desire to add a homegrown coach to his backroom staff. • He said he would watch all of England's Euro 2008 qualifying games but revealed the style and system his England team play would be 'flexible' depending on the players available to him. • He claimed it would not be possible to have a 'strict' disciplinarian approach to his new role because he was not in daily contact with the player. • He rejected suggestions he had been reluctant to sign English players during his club career, saying he brought Ray Wilkins and Mark Hateley to AC Milan when he was a scout and worked with David Beckham at Real Madrid. • Beckham, who was dropped by Capello from the Real Madrid team after announcing his move to LA Galaxy but subsequently recalled, 'is a great man and a great player', according to Capello. • He insisted he has an excellent relationship with the Premier League's top bosses.
