Fabio Capello asks England WAGs to pack their bagsOctober 15th, 2008 - 4:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 15 (ANI): Manager of the England football team Fabio Capello has banned the players WAGs, and told them to pack their bags.
The strict new regime has, according to vice-captain Rio Ferdinand, already had a positive impact on the team, with players making a good start at the World Cup qualifying campaign.
We became a bit of a circus in terms of the WAG situation. It seems like there was a big show around the whole England squad, the Sun quoted Ferdinand as saying.
It was like watching a theatre show unfolding. Football almost became a secondary element to the main event.
People were worrying more about what people were wearing and where they were going, rather than the England football team.
You dont get many tournaments in your career. To give yourself the best chance, you have to be focused.
It was just a bit too close. The football wasnt really separated from the personal life, he stated.
The change has convinced Ferdinand that the old days under Sven Goran Eriksson will not be repeated again, with England so far having three Group Six wins out of three.
It feels as if were going in the right direction. You can see were at the start of something. Hopefully, therell be bigger rewards than in the past, Ferdinand added. (ANI)
