Capello hails Seedorf and Honda

Fabio Capello believes Clarence Seedorf and Keisuke Honda have “everything it takes to do well” at Milan.

The Russia manager visited the Milanello training ground today and spoke to Milan Channel about the team’s new Coach.

“It is always a lovely feeling to come back to Milanello and see the people you worked with in the past. It feels like coming home,” said Capello, who started his management career at San Siro.

“I spoke to Seedorf yesterday and he invited me to the ground. When he was 20 years old, I took him away with me to Real Madrid.

“We’ve always had a good rapport and I was curious to see his training session. Clarence has a lot of experience and everything it takes to do well. He’s always had a great deal of character and that’s something you never lose, no matter what the role.”


Seedorf isn’t the only new arrival this month, as Japanese international Honda has already scored his debut Rossoneri goal.

“I consider Honda to be an excellent player, though he must adapt to the higher pace of the game in Serie A than at CSKA Moscow,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.

“I also spoke to Japan manager Alberto Zaccheroni and he agreed Honda is a very good player. He has great vision, is an assist-man and scores goals too.”
