Capello: Owen conundrum is his "tormentor"
England manager Fabio Capello has described Michael Owen as his "tormentor".
Speaking at a seminar based at Coverciano titled 'Football And Those Who Discuss It', he said: "Cassano? I have Owen. I already have a tormentor, each one has their own."
Owen, who missed the recent World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus through injury, has not played for England since early last year and his chances of making it to the World Cup in South Africa look slim.
Capello also ruled out succeeding Lippi in charge of Italy, but admitted a return to Serie A giants Juventus at some point in the future could not be ruled out.
He added: "Coach of the Italian national team? No, never. A return to Juventus? You can never say never, in football anything can happen."
Capello also revealed has been "saddened" by the problems at Italian football grounds and claims watching games in England and Spain is a more spectator-friendly experience.
