Arsenal winger Theo Walcott insists there's been no fallout from Fabio Capello after his book was released last month.

Walcott was critical of England coach Capello for the way he was treated leading up to being axed for last year's World Cup.

"I didn't have a clear-the-air meeting with the manager," said Walcott. "I saw him in Italy. We had a laugh and a joke about it.

"He said he preferred me as a footballer rather than a writer and laughed it off.

"He was great but I never thought it was going to be a problem anyway.

"He has been great to me. There are no hard feelings."
