Capello denies Ancelotti claims

Ancelotti has never forgiven Capello for the way he treated him as a player during his days at AC Milan, according to The Sun.

Capello said: “I don’t recognise myself in this description! (by Ancelotti). Sometimes I fight (disagree) with one player, not a lot, one. I usually speak with the players.

“I never went to dinner with the players, I never went to dinner with the journalists. I’d prefer to go with my wife or friends of mine.

“The rules of the club are I am a manager, the others are players. I respect the players and I ask respect. That is all it is. Not more than that.

“If you want to be a friend of the players, you can choose. It is a different style.”
