Del Bosque defends Real Madrid coach Capello

Del Bosque said last night: “Fabio Capello has the job at the moment, so there’s no chance of me returning. He imposes a system at Real Madrid which I like, if it fails then it is the players’ fault.

“It’s true that Real Madrid aren’t playing a ‘showy’ type of football, but I am not one who would question the value of Capello’s work.

“It is important to remember this project is only in midterm. It’s a two or three year proposition.”

Del Bosque added, on a possible return to Real: “My doors have always been open to Real Madrid. But this is a decision that is not left up to me.”
