Capello noticing differences in English game

New England manager Fabio Capello may have only been in the job for a month but he has already noticed significant differences in the English game compared to his experiences in Italy and Spain.

This is the 61-year-old's first role in international football having previously coached club sides AC Milan, Juventus, Roma and Real Madrid, winning nine league titles in Italy and Spain as well as lifting the European Cup with Milan in 1994.

And he has already realised there are a number of issues - some more specific to England - associated with managing a national team.

'The way of playing is different but the way the clubs relate to the national team in England it is the same as everywhere,' he said.

'What has been interesting is in England we have 38% of players in England (the Premier League) who are English whereas in Spain Spanish players are in a much higher percentage so the Spain manager has a higher choice and this is something that needs to be reminded (kept in mind).

'Being a club manager you can work on a daily basis to iron out creases. Here you need to gel together different mentalities and different ways of playing football.

'You need to be able to create a right mix that allows you to have a good system of play and a good group.'

Capello was asked whether he thought there was any difference between players in Italy and Spain and those in England.

'I think the players are the same everywhere,' he told a press conference televised by Sky Sports News.

'I found great co-operation here. I have been impressed by the behaviour of the players and with this mentality I believe we will be able to do very well.'

He was also quizzed about how he was finding life in a new country and what he liked best.

'My English life has been FA, hotels, games,' he said.
