Fab’s got a Rus­sian prob­lem

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY OCTOBER 11 - By MIKE MCGRATH

FABIO CAPELLO has re­vealed he fears his mes­sages to his Rus­sia play­ers are not get­ting trans­lated prop­erly.

The 66-year-old, who had lan­guage dif­fi­cul­ties dur­ing his four years as Eng­land boss, ad­mits he is hav­ing prob­lems af­ter mov­ing to Moscow.

Speak­ing and read­ing the Rus­sian lan­guage has been dif­fi­cult for the Ital­ian (left) de­spite two wins from his first two World Cup qualifiers.

“There aren’t many peo­ple speak­ing English so I al­ways need a trans­la­tor – and it makes it more dif­fi­cult hav­ing an­other per­son in­volved to say what I want to say,” said Capello.

“Some­times the right ex­pres­sion or word helps you a lot, but some­one might trans­late it with their ideas or ac­cord­ing to their feel­ings. Then it is dif­fer­ent.

“Mo­ments of anger, mo­ments of joy, mo­ments where you have to be care­ful – so I would say it is re­ally dif­fi­cult.”
