England boss Capello slams touchy-feely Chelsea rival Ancelotti

England boss Fabio Capello has hit back at claims from Carlo Ancelotti that he is "surly".

Capello reacted furiously after being branded 'surly' by the new Chelsea chief in his autobiography.

The Three Lions boss stormed: "I don't recognise myself in the description that has been given.

"Sometimes I fight with one player. Not a lot, one.

"Usually I speak with the players but I never went to dinner with them.

"I never went to dinner with the journalists. I prefer to go with my wife or with friends.

"I think the rules of the club are 'I'm a manager, you are a player'. I respect the players and I ask respect from them. Not more than this.

"If you want to be a friend of the players, you be. Ancelotti won with his style. I won with ours."
