London, Nov.18 (ANI): England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says that he isn't as scared of club coach Alex Ferguson's hairdryer treatment as he is of national coach Fabio Capello's stare.

Rooney said: "It's just little things. Like when he walks down the corridor past you. The way he holds himself, the way he looks at you. You just know he's a tough man - he has that aura about him. Sometimes he just walks by as if you're not even there and it can be quite intimidating."

Rooney said that with Capello, it's just about the work. It's business, not pleasure.

"When we get to the England camp we're there for football - not to discuss his private life or talk about art. We don't ask about his private life and he doesn't ask about ours. We're there to work, then we go home," The Sun quoted Rooney, as saying of Capello.

"I think the key thing is that you know that if you don't play well every game under him, then you'll lose your place. It's as simple as that," he added. (ANI)
