London, May 11 (ANI): With the World Cup now only a month away England football boss Fabio Capello has cashed in on his high-profile position to back an online World Cup fantasy-football cash game, leaving the FA and fans both stunned.
According to The Sun, Capello has linked up with a gambling firm that is to push punters to part with up to 199.99 pounds, in the hope of winning money off the back of England performances at this summer's South African football extravaganza.
Capello has reportedly created a system called 'The Capello Index', that he will use to rate his England players and this system will be updated two hours after each World Cup match.
Capello claimed that his index will help inform England fans during the World Cup, but really fans are just encouraged to use it to help them play Capello XI, that has entrance fees ranging from 29.99 pounds and 199.99 pounds.
Capello said: "It's not only about money, my interest is in football." (ANI)
