Former Manchester United and AC Milan winger Jesper Blomqvist says new England manager Fabio Capello's temper is nothing compared to Sir Alex Ferguson's.

The Swede, 33, said: "Capello is a really tough guy. He is not afraid to take people on. It is basically his way or you are out.

"Saying players will fear him is a bit strong. Capello can be fiery but he's not as forceful as Fergie."

But Blomqvist warned midfield stars Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard that Capello will have no hesitation axing them if they fail as a pairing. He added: "If Capello feels they will not fit together then he will not persevere with them. He will take the one who he feels improves the team most and the other will be on the bench."
