"In training if you're not doing it right he'll step in and tell you and try to help you improve. He's passionate, really passionate about winning, so I think he's a good man.
"It's exactly what England need at this moment and with a bit more work between him and the players we can go forward as a team.
"When we first met him he got his point across straight away about what he expected from us.
"We've reflected on the videos of previous games and he opened our eyes on a few things.
"He's helped us a lot and pointed things out on the video about what we're doing wrong but what we're doing right as well.
"He's come in and stamped his authority. I'm absolutely convinced he'll be good for the future. He will be a really good manager for us.
"Playing for Sir Alex and Fabio Capello is brilliant. Hopefully I can add some more trophies to their CVs and also start adding to my own collection."
