Fabio Capello finding life tough in Russia
Moscow: Russia boss Fabio Capello has admitted that he`s finding it difficult to adapt to his new surroundings, but is determined to overcome any obstacles as he tries to guide the national team to World Cup 2014.
The former England coach replaced Dick Advocaat at the helm after a disappointing Euro 2012 campaign, but he has so far struggled to settle.
"Everything is written in Cyrillic, and it`s difficult to read and to learn the Cyrillic alphabet," Capello stated to Uefa.com.
"I always need a translator, and it makes it a bit more difficult to say what I want to say. Sometimes the right expression, the right word, helps you a lot. So I would say it`s really difficult.
"But as with all difficult challenges, I like to take them on.
"I have just arrived and I am living in a hotel. Moscow is a beautiful city. Russia is a nation full of development. You see many nice things. For example all the stadiums are built for the World Cup, the infrastructure, so it`s really a nation worth living in."
Russia are currently preparing for the World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Portugal and Azerbaijan.
