Capello: 'Coaches in VAR booth'

Fabio Capello believes VAR can be improved by “putting a Coach next to the officials in the booth, so there’s a more complete view.”

The new technology was introduced in Serie A from this season and has provided mixed results, as Coaches complained that there is a lack of consistency in the way incidents are treated.

“In order to improve the use of this technology, I’d put a Coach next to the VAR officials in the booth, so there’s a more complete view,” Capello told Tuttosport.

Capello: ‘Juve have mental edge’

Fabio Capello believes Juventus’ ‘winning habit and mentality’ make them favourites to win the Scudetto again.

The Old Lady are a point and a place behind Serie A leaders Napoli as they go in search of a seventh straight League title.

But despite acknowledging the ‘danger’ posed by Maurizio Sarri’s Partenopei, Capello is tipping his former club to win through.

“Napoli, with no more Champions League, are dangerous,” the former Real Madrid and England boss told Tuttosport.

Hamsik already a Napoli legend

Marek Hamsik hasn't just broken Napoli records, writes Emmet Gates, but over a decade embedded himself in the fabric of the club and the city.

As Dries Mertens rolled the ball across the turf at the Stadio San Paolo in the 38th minute against Sampdoria, Marek Hamsik knew this was it: the chance to make history.

It was an opportunity that had looked inevitable, to break a record that loomed over and consumed him for months and weeks, to overtake Diego Maradona as the club’s record goal-scorer.

Of course he didn’t miss, delicately lifting the ball over the on-rushing Emiliano Viviano into the roof of the net to give Napoli the lead, and indeed the victory.

Capello: ‘Ramires? It’s not up to me…’

Jiangsu Suning Coach Fabio Capello says Ramires would be “a great reinforcement” for Inter, but “it depends on many factors”.

The Brazilian midfielder has been heavily linked with the Nerazzurri, and said today that he would “be happy to go to Inter”.

Both clubs are owned by Suning Group, so the Beneamata hope to take him on what would essentially be a free loan until the end of the season.

“We’re waiting for him at pre-season training,” Capello told Sky.
