Capello: Madrid will win the tenth
Russia national team manager Fabio Capello believes 2014 will be the year that Real Madrid finally win La Decima.
Los Blancos have won a record nine European Cups but haven’t lifted the famous Champions League trophy since Zinedine Zidane’s exquisite volley inspired them to the title in 2002, but Capello thinks the strength of the Real squad and the time Barcelona will take to adapt to Tata Martino’s style will mean La Decima will be in the Bernabeu trophy cabinet very soon,
He told Marca: “Real is favourite to win La Liga and a tenth European Cup. The squad is extraordinary. The change of coach at Barcelona has brought something different. The team plays faster, attacking football and scores a lot of goals, but it is still developing.”
The former Real Madrid manager is also excited by the three-way battle for La Liga,
“It makes me happy to see three teams fighting for the title. Atlético has joined in and it’s not just a fight between Real and Barça.”
