Fabio Capello blasted AC Milan over their loss to Lazio at home yesterday. Here are his comments via Football Italia:

“Milan are in trouble, the 73-year-old told Radio Anch’io Sport.

“The players aren’t of a great level, you can tell. They are playing with fear.”

He was particularly critical of two AC Milan players, he went after Brazil international Paqueta and Portugal U-21 attacker Leao.

“They don’t have any personality and they don’t perform according to their set value.

“Paqueta has quality, but he doesn’t show it. Leao made me nervous against Lazio. He needs to keep playing when Milan don’t have possession.

“Yesterday he played only when he had the ball at his feet. I repeat, I think the problems Milan are facing are in their heads.

“When you don’t have a lot of quality and your head is not working… The situation at the club might have an impact.

“I don’t see a leader, a captain, not only someone who wears the armband, but a player who can also help extend the ideas of the coach and create a collective.”
