London, June 20 (ANI): Italian coach Fabio Capello's off-hand attitude is causing quite a stir and dissension within the England World Cup squad, and the team's shocking display against both the United States and Algeria, has added to his fury.

Capello has often walked past team members, even seniors, without even saying hello, News of The World reports.he morale of the squad is so down that even Capello's famous "hair-dryer"-style rants are no longer having any impact.

Capello, 64, is yet to face a full-on revolt from his misfiring stars.

"The main problem is the boredom and the isolation. The facilities are first class, but Capello allows them to do nothing but play table tennis or nine holes of golf. They have no freedom," a source was quoted, as saying.

"Before the World Cup, the initial 30-man squad spent nearly two weeks training at Irdning in the Austrian mountains and they hated it. The boredom has continued at Rustenburg and it's affecting them all very badly. Sometimes they are told to stay in their rooms between three and eight to get some rest. But they don't do this with their clubs. It's totally alien to them. Wayne in particular is going mad with boredom," the source added.

The insider said: "Players are angry at how unapproachable he is. Even the senior players can't talk to him. There is no warmth there and he makes a point of walking past them without even saying hello. They want somebody with at least a semblance of the human touch - a bit like Sven really." (ANI)
