Fabio Capello’s bitchy remark to David Beckham (and Barack Obama)
England coach doesn’t think Becks was man of the match
Fabio Capello took a slight dig at David Beckham after his bearded substitute received the man of the match award against Belarus. The Italian compared ITV pundit and Sunderland manager Steve Bruce’s decision to give the award to Beckham to Barack Obama receiving the Nobel peace prize.
After the match, he said: “It’s like Barack Obama having been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after only eight months as President of the United States. David was on the pitch less than half an hour.”
Yes, but in that time he set out a vision for some decent long-range passing and peace in the Middle East.
