Fabio Capello throws metal food service lid in rage against texting Emile Heskey
England boss reminds players of his rules via the medium of crashing metal covers
Emile Heskey reportedly found himself in Fabio Capello’s bad books in the build-up to England’s qualifier in Ukraine after being caught texting under the dinner table. The Italian’s rules dictate that no mobile phones should be brought to group meal times.
Capello is alleged to have blown a fuse when he spotted Heskey sending illicit messages. He threw a stainless stell food service lid to the floor so that the noise echoed around the room, before using the stunned silence to reiterate his disciplinary rules.
His assistant Stuart Pearce has revealed Capello operates a ‘two strikes and you’re out’ system, which leaves Heskey having to tread very carefully in the future.
