Before Englands 2-1 friendly win over Hungary at Wembley, Capello told ITV Sport that England’s most capped outfield player was “probably a bit too old” to play for England again at the age of 35.

“Thank you, David,” added Capello who used the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player as part of his backroom staff at the recent World Cup in South Africa.

Capello told a news conference after the match that he had a very good relationship with Beckham, but had not actually told him face to face which is will not be pleasent for david to see this on TV.

“No, I have not told him, but I will,” he told reporters. well he knows now!

“We have to look for new young players, this evening you saw new players who can play on the right and left wings.“So I hope David will be OK to come and play his last game here at Wembley in the next friendly game to come and wave bye-bye to the crowd.”

That game is expected to be against France in November

  • No loyalty to their own. The leadership, honed skills and morale Becks would be capable of bringing to an English club might elicit a far bigger payoff for them. Shallow, short term thinking, infused with a spot of bottom line ageism. Their loss.

    Capello can't even speak english and the only reason he is still here is because theF.A. couldn't afford to pay him off. WHERE'S THE LOYALTY! Beckham is english football.
    Edward I couldn't agree more, also who is there? Walcott, nope he can't cross. Milner is better in a different position. Capello has yet again made another huge mistake Beckham is in a different class to any other current England player, in terms of passion and pride for wearing the three lions. TheF.A. again another cock up, who's the figurehead for english sport who was there for the olympic bid, and now for the world cup bid, that's gratitude. English and proud, Beckham Believer Forever 🙁
