Arshavin hails Capello's effect on Russia
Fabio Capello is an authoritarian who doesn't listen to anyone else's opinion, Russia midfielder Andrei Arshavin said of the national football team's new coach
Capello’s reign started Wednesday with a 1-1 home friendly draw with the Ivory Coast, with Max Gradel cancelling out Alan Dzagoev’s opener.
“With Capello I like that he doesn’t listen to anyone and relies only on his own opinion,” Arshavin said Wednesday.
The ex-England and Real Madrid coach has also changed Russia’s style. “As you see, we don’t trace out squares any more, we play a bit differently,” Arshavin added.
