England boss Capello wishes Man Utd legend Charlton was still playing

England boss Fabio Capello has spoken of his admiration for Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton.

At a special event hosted by England sponsors Nationwide, Capello did let his mind wander to the player he would love to call on.

"Sir Bobby Charlton," he said. "He was one of the players I liked when I was playing.

"He was a midfielder, a bit like Alfredo di Stefano.

"He had the same style. He ran a lot. He could defend and attack. Overall, he was a really fantastic player."
