Inghilterra-Montenegro, partita valida per le Qualificazioni di Euro 2012, termina sullo 0-0. Un giornalista della BBC, Mike Ingham, intervista per la radio il c.t. degli inglesi, l’italianissimo Fabio Capello.
Ingham: “Fabio.. that wasn’t good enough, was it? from England, tonight..”
Capello: “No.. resùlt no good, we creit five chance to score gol, ve keeper was rili gud, he saves evriténg… batteeeeeee, we know… when I prepèr ve game I spoke with ve pléieres, vey defending very well, it’s the forf game that… ve clean shit, so… evri game… we ev to respect Montenegro, because is rili combacting, defending very well, evri time whenne… of veee… opponents playere receivt ve ball, they go tu players to win back ve ball… is, is good ting now… we ev to play more gamessss… and nothing is do!”

Ingham: “Fabio, England looked very flat in the first half, do you think you would have been better off playing… do you think you would have been better off playing a warm-up game last Friday to prepare for this match, maybe not playing next month?”

Ingham: “Thank you very much, Fabio”.
Questo signore prende 6 milioni di sterline (circa 6.8 milioni di euro) all’anno. E deve preparare in media 6 partite sparse per la stagione.
Potrebbe anche permettersi un discreto professore di inglese. Non dico un docente di Oxford: penso che un qualsiasi studente universitario di lingue in cerca di un lavoretto pomeridiano sia sufficiente.
Have a go, Fabio.
