Capello upsets former West Ham legend


The prospective England gaffer won’t be taking any nonsense concerning tactics

During a 1996 friendly tour of China with Milan, Paolo Di Canio had the audacity to question Fabio Capello’s tactics. After being substituted for a defender to protect a half time 1-0 lead, Di Canio asked why the gaffer cared so much for a result against a China XI. After a Gordon Ramsay-style expletive tirade, Capello offered these immortal words:

“Your face looks like a penis.”

Di Canio didn’t play for Milan again.
