Capello won’t have much Cole patience

The Chelsea left-back has been sidelined since February after
breaking his ankle and is facing a race against time to be fit for
South Africa. He has been pencilled in to return for Chelsea’s home
game with Stoke on April 25 and he will do so with Capello’s words
ringing in his ears. “I know not all the players will be in the
same shape. Some will have played the whole season, some will have
played only half the season,” he told Four Four Two magazine. “If,
for example, Ashley Cole is only half-fit, that’s not enough. He
needs to play too. After three months of being injured he will need
games.” Capello went on to explain he is not a fan of playing
players out of position and that he plans to use specialists at the
World Cup. Working on a marking system out of 10, the Italian
concedes he has plenty of thinking to do before finalising his
squad. He added: “I think to myself: the value of this player is
10, another is nine, another is eight and a half. And I choose (the
players with the) most (points). “Everyone has different qualities.
For some positions, one characteristic is more important than the
other one. “It depends on the position, it depends on different
moments in the game, it depends on the opponents. “I prefer the
specialist. I think that 11 specialists win against 11 players who
can play in different positions. It is nice to see players who can
play in different positions though. There will be times when you
have to do this.”
