The Real Madrid boss emphasised his belief that problems Capello’s management style is causing within the England camp will ultimately prevent the side from fulfilling its potential.
Mourinho, who is one of Capello’s successors at the Santiago BernabÃƒÂ©u, labelled the national team’s situation as a “mess”.
“The problem is the manager,” said Mourinho. “Capello will not work for England. He has a one-track relationship with players. Ask anyone here at Real Madrid.
“He can’t change. You cannot go around just shouting at players. They need to feel special.
“It is clear. Capello will not work for England. He does not know the players. They are frightened of him and they can’t play for him.
“For me, it is a mess for England. Players need clear tactics. They cannot be confused about what they have to do. It is the manager’s fault. And it is a big shame.”
