Is Fabio being beastly to the WAGS?


SOCCER-WORLD/In keeping with the spirit of the times and with his own stern image, Fabio Capello has clamped down on the WAGS.

The wives and girlfriends, whose exuberance and excess often made for more interesting viewing three years ago in Germany than the games their HABS were involved in, have been banished to the stands.

Capello is going to allow England’s players to see their families only one day a week, after matches, at the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

“We’re going to South Africa to play, not for a holiday,” he growls. “If they don’t want to come for the day only, they should stay home.”
