Capello: 'Coman another Juventus mistake'

Fabio Capello accuses Juventus of ‘repeating the same mistakes’ with Kingsley Coman as Thierry Henry by selling too early.

Coman started for Bayern Munich in tonight’s Champions League Final against Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon, preferred to Inter loan winger Ivan Perisic.

“Coman is considered good enough to start in a Champions League Final for Bayern Munich,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia.

Capello: 'Zaniolo has Ballon d'Or potential'

Fabio Capello maintains Roma starlet Nicolò Zaniolo has ‘the potential to become a Ballon d’Or winner’ in future. ‘I am in love with this player.’

The creative midfielder just turned 21 last month and yesterday got his first start since rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in January.

He was inspirational in the 3-1 victory away to Juventus, including a strong run from his own half to set up Diego Perotti’s second goal.

Capello: 'Rangnick did interesting but unimportant things'

Former Milan coach Fabio Capello says Ralf Rangnick ‘did interesting but unimportant things’ in Germany and feels the Rossoneri start from scratch again unless they stick with current coach Stefano Pioli.

The 74-year-old, who won four Scudetti and one Champions League as coach of the Diavolo in the 1990s, spoke to Radio Rai about the former RB Leipzig coach’s arrival in Milan.

Capello advises Fonseca: 'Don't listen to Roman radio'

Former coach Fabio Capello has advised Roma tactician Paulo Fonseca to not listen to Roman radio stations.

After back-to-back defeats to Milan and Udinese, the fans have voiced their concern and Capello has claimed the coach and his players must avoid being influenced by the local Radio stations.

“I didn’t like the Roma I saw over the last two games,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia. “Against Milan the team walked on the pitch.

Capello: 'Milan not nine points worse than Roma'

Fabio Capello has claimed the nine-point gap between Roma and Milan doesn’t represent the difference in quality ahead of this weekend’s match.

Roma sit fifth in Serie A and currently hold a nine-point lead over eight-placed Milan, but Capello has claimed Stefano Pioli has turned things around after replacing Marco Giampaolo at the helm in October.

Serie A returns today with Torino-Parma and Cagliari-Verona, then Atalanta-Sassuolo and Inter-Sampdoria on Sunday.

Capello critical of Sarri choices

Fabio Capello is far from convinced by Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus choices in the Coppa Italia Final against Napoli, including the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty placement.

The game ended 0-0, with Napoli winning the penalty shoot-out 4-2, but CR7 never got to take his kick because he’d been scheduled last.

By that stage, the Partenopei had already converted four, while Paulo Dybala’s was saved and Danilo fired over the bar.

Capello: 'Leaders make difference'

Fabio Capello believes we’ll see ‘home advantage wiped out and real leaders make the difference’ when the Coppa Italia and Serie A return.

We’re three months into the lockdown due to COVID-19 and Calcio is back tonight with the Coppa Italia semi-final Juventus-Milan at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

“The months spent on the couch will take their toll, help propagate injuries, among the other damage left behind by this virus,” Capello told La Repubblica.

Capello: 'Sarri is Total Football'

Fabio Capello agrees with the Matthijs de Ligt suggestion that Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri is ‘the closest Italian equivalent to Dutch Total Football.’

Former Ajax defender De Ligt made the comparison this week, praising Sarri for the tactical approach to the sport.

“If De Ligt says it, then who am I to contradict him?” noted Capello in Tuttosport newspaper.

Serie A Seasons: Roma 2000-01

A passport scandal, a decisive Japanese substitute, the most expensive 31-year-old in Calcio and overly-passionate fans made Fabio Capello’s second season at Roma an ultimately glorious rollercoaster.

Words: Martin Mork

Coach Fabio Capello jumped off his seat as hundreds of Roma fans stormed the pitch with five minutes to go against Parma: “You idiots, get off the pitch!” he screamed as he wanted to clear the grass at the Olimpico whilst the intruders stripped his players down to their underpants.
