Capello set for Villa v United watching brief

Aston Villa striker John Carew claims Fabio Capello can be England's very own special one.

The Norway forward played under the Italian when both men were at Roma and he believes the 61-year-old is a rare coaching talent.

Carew, whose Villa side will be watched by Capello as he starts work in his new role, told the Daily Express: 'Capello made an impression straight away. He has an aura.

'When England decided they were not going to look for a British manager I was not surprised they asked Capello. He has done a lot of great things.'

Carew, who has scored seven times for Martin O'Neill's side since joining from Lyon last January, believes Capello could now be ready to work his magic with the underperforming England team.

'What he has is part of the man, you cannot learn it. The England players will find that Capello can turn you into a special player and make a very good team - it is something that is born with the man, it is like gold.'

'Wherever Capello goes he succeeds.'
