Capello: 'Milan sicken me'

Fabio Capello is ‘sickened’ by Milan’s treatment of Zvonimir Boban and Paolo Maldini and ‘doesn’t like’ Giorgio Chiellini writing an autobiography.

Capello began his interview with Corriere dello Sport by maintaining Juventus won the 2005 and 2006 Scudetti ‘on the pitch’ after they were stripped as a result of the Calciopoli scandal.

“[Luciano] Moggi and [Antonio] Giraudo were great directors, we won [the two Scudetti] on the pitch,” he told the newspaper.

“Calciopoli took our Scudetti away and gave them to others.”

Boban and Maldini played for Milan under the 73-year-old in the 1990s and were appointed club chiefs last summer.

However, the Croat left in March feeling undermined by Elliott Management’s pursuit of Ralf Rangnick and looks like being followed out of San Siro by his ex-teammate.

“How Boban and Maldini are being treated makes me almost feel sick. As directors, they’ve showed the sincerity they had as players.

“I would’ve done what Boban did and not wear a jersey at all. Dignity comes before everything else.”

Finally, the former Roma boss was asked about Chiellini’s new autobiography, which has already caused a stir.

“I’ve been asked to write a book many times. I’ve been offered considerable amounts.

“I don’t like reading certain things. For me, football’s played and not told.”
