I must make it clear that I know nothing about football. The new England manager/coach does know a lot about football – but he doesn’t spika da English too good. He says he will learn it in a month.
Kelvin Mackenzie, writing in The Sun, reports: ” Capello says he will have mastered English in a month. That’s rubbish. He will be lucky to put two sentences together by the eve of our friendly on February 6 (after all, Jamie Carragher, the Liverpool defender, hasn’t mastered English yet and he’s 29).”
Mackenzie, settling into his rant, continues:
“At best Capello will speak pidgin English. How can he explain the nuances of tactics when he can’t even spell nuance? What will he do? Point at Rooney and then point at the goal? Point at Robinson and then point at the ball? Point at Lampard and then point at his penis? It’s a farce. The No 2 — who by the way is 70 — will be bloody lucky to be alive by the time the next World Cup takes place.”
Looks like we are going to be looking at 1966 World Cup footage for some time.
