England boss Capello's top-of-the-range hairdryer stolen

England boss Fabio Capello's top-of-the-range hairdryer has been stolen from his private dressing room at Wembley. Stadium chiefs are investigating the theft - which occurred after Wednesday's game against Switzerland.

The suave Italian ordered for it to be installed in his dressing room before the game.

Wembley officials agreed to the request - but were horrified to discover the expensive blower was missing after the game.

Staff spent yesterday searching for the missing hairdryer, but it was nowhere to be seen.

An investigation has now been launched and a new hairdryer will be bought in time for England's next home game.

A source told the Mirror: "The England manager has his own dressing room next to the players' one. After Fabio got the England job he asked for a hairdryer to be put in there for his sole use.

"We thought it was a bit strange but he's the boss and we got a top-of-the-range dryer. Everything went smoothly on Wednesday and Fabio seemed happy when he left. But it wasn't until the next day we noticed the hairdryer had disappeared.

"Everyone is terrified about what he is going to say when he finds out it's missing."
