Twice the Italian has lifted LaLiga with Los Blancos, in 1996/97 and again ten years later, meaning he knows what it takes for Madrid to finally get their name back on the trophy.
“The problem for Real Madrid now is Cristiano Ronaldo,” he has told Onda Cero.
“He is not physically well and may not yet have the right balance with his injured knee because he never usually fails.”
Is that the case or is Capello just seeking some attention, in order to emerge from the non-entity realm?
Anyway, small pockets of supporters have begun to question Zinedine Zidane, as Real slump to four straight draws, but Capello believes in the Frenchman.
“[Zidane] has won the Champions League, you have to give him time, even if it’s difficult, at first.”
Finally, the 70-year-old also discussed Spain’s game with his native Italy that presents a tough test for both in a World Cup qualifier.
“[Juventus Stadium] is a good Italian venue. We’ll see two teams that are trying to make a new system work, and my experience tells me that Spain will win, but my desire is for Italy to win.”
