Fabio to ‘have a word’ with Rooney

Rooney experienced a second successive World Cup finals where he
was below his best as England crashed out at the last 16 stage.
Last week pictures emerged of the 24-year-old outside a Manchester
nightclub, smoking and allegedly urinating behind a bin. Capello
heard of Rooney’s antics before returning from holiday but will
spell out the need to behave properly to the Manchester United
star. He said: “About Rooney, I read something in a Spanish paper
and I read Alex Ferguson was not happy with this. “I will speak
with Rooney. They have to know they are really important people for
the fans. “I always speak with the players. They have to remember
they are really important to the fans, and behaviour-wise we have
to be careful. “That applies to everyone. I will speak to Rooney
when I meet him. I will remind him it is not good.” Capello is
aware several England players have been pictured in the newspapers
enjoying their holidays following their exit from the World Cup.
But he points out everyone has different ways of dealing with
disappointment. He said: “I think the reaction when you lose is
different. Everyone has different reactions. “I prefer to stay at
home, others prefer to go out. Everyone chooses a different
reaction.” Capello has defended his decision not to attend the
European Under-19 Championships in which England reached the
semi-finals. But he opted to watch the games on television after
being told none of the players were yet ready for a call into the
senior set-up. Capello said: “Before I decided to go, I spoke with
Franco Baldini, Stuart Pearce, Ray Clemence and the coaches. “I
spoke with Trevor Brooking to see if some players were really
interesting to check and monitor. He told me no one was ready for
the senior team. “For this reason I watched all the games on TV and
I stayed with my family.” Capello also confirmed he will look to
add another English coach into the set-up. He said: “I’ve big
confidence in Stuart and Ray. They did a great job in South Africa.
“We will speak with Trevor Brooking about what we can do in the
future (regarding another coach).”
