Germany manager Bierhoff criticizes team spirit of Capello’s England squad

London, Apr 1(ANI): Germany football manager Oliver Bierhoff has told England that they must rediscover their team spirit if they are to be successful.

When asked if Fabio Capello’s World Cup squad was the worst he had seen, Bierhoff said: “In this tournament [2010] it seemed to be the worst. England had quality players, but you could see the players were not communicating any more.”

“Fabio Capello is a famous, experienced coach, but you could see there were certain groups like France who were divided. It happened to me in 2000 when we didn’t go through,” he added.

The 42-year-old also supported suggestions that a native manager may bridge the communication gap.

“I don’t known that it’s essential, but it helps. It means he is not like a project manager who comes in for four or five days. He must know what is going on in the country,” the Independent quoted Bierhoff, as saying.

Earlier, Capello had boldly stated that his new young England team can emulate the success of Germany’s new generation at the Euro 2012 tournament. (ANI)
