Capello in love with London life

England coach Fabio Capello admits he loves life in London.

The Three Lions coach has spoken of how he has been won over by the people, food and culture of his new life in London.

Capello said: "I love the clubs' hospitality and there's always a range of good food, too.

"Wonderful fish, unmissable lamb and also, sometimes, Angus beef steaks.

"I also get to try typical English dishes like shepherd's pie which is a kind of ragu with potatoes.

"I have also discovered Lebanese cuisine here in London, in a wonderful restaurant near my house."

Capello has enjoyed a distinguished career as a club manager with the likes of Real Madrid, AC Milan and Juventus.

As a national manager he has more free time on his hands and feels London is the perfect place to enjoy it.

He added: "This life is totally different from the life of a club coach. But you do get more free time and I am in a great place to spend that free time. London is ideal.

"I intend to spend time seeing musicals. They do them brilliantly here as well as concerts and plays.

"I love Mamma Mia! I have all the Abba songs in my head. I also adore Billy Elliot and really admire the young dancers.

"One of the things I really like about London is the wide appeal of the theatre.

"They even take babies to the theatre here and, in my opinion, that's a sign of how important culture is in this country."
