Language no problem for Capello, says Campbell

December 19, 2007

England defender Sol Campbell insists the language barrier will not be a major problem for new national team boss Fabio Capello.

The veteran Portsmouth centre-half is enjoying an Indian summer to his international career after his Premier League performances for the south coast club prompted a recall under Steve McClaren.

And after Capello was appointed as McClaren's successor, Campbell said: 'Football is international. That's the beauty of football. There's no language, everyone understands football.

'He is a fantastic manager, he has won an incredible amount of trophies and honours. So he's got the credentials, hopefully he can transmit that to international football. So it should be good.'
