Fabio Capello Suffers From Cyrillic Alphabet

Showing good results on the pitch, new Russia's national team coach, Fabio Capello, confesses the Russian language is the biggest problem for him now.

      "I have just arrived and I am now living in a hotel, searching for a suitable house" Capello said in his latest interview. "Moscow is a great city. Russia is a nation full of development with many beautiful things to see. For example, all the stadiums are built for the World Cup, the infrastructure is getting better. So it's a good place to live our days."

      The Italian has labeled Russia’s start in the World Cup 2014 qualifying as “fabulous” after the team collected confident wins against Northern Ireland (2-0) and Israel (4-0). Capello also praised Zenit players, six of them are members of the national team, for their big international experience.

      However, Capello's life in Russian is not so pleasant and easy, as there are some problems the coach faces in everyday life.

      "Everything is written in Cyrillic, which is very difficult to read and learn. I always need a translator, and it makes it a bit more difficult to say what I want to say. Sometimes the right expression, the right word, helps you a lot. So I would say it's really difficult. But as with all difficult challenges, I like to take them on."

      On Friday, October 12, Russia's national football team will take their main rival for a Brazil 2014 ticket – Portugal. Both teams currently share the top spot in Group F, having bagged six points in their two opening games.
