England boss Capello: Chelsea's Hiddink got it right against Barcelona

England boss Fabio Capello believes Guus Hiddink was better tactically than Sir Alex Ferguson against Barcelona.

"I watched three games and I learned a lesson - Hiddink and (Pep) Guardiola," Capello said. "When Barcelona played here they didn't play.

"Chelsea played better. It's possible. If you want to understand you have to see the different keys of the games.

"For me it was very, very interesting, very important for the future."

Capello insists he is not concerned by Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's lacklustre performance in the final.

"He lost easy passes in Rome - incredible," Capello said. "He was nervous. He wanted to play different. But it's not a problem for me because he's a very, very good player and he will play very well."
