Three Lions coach sorry for ratings embarrassment...

England manager Fabio Capello is sorry for the upset caused by his endorsement of a World Cup player ratings index that bore his name.

Ratings were released last week of the England players' performances in the World Cup. Capello had declared that he was angry about this, having not seen the content before it was posted on the Capello index website.

Now the coach's son and agent, Pierfilippo, has apologised on behalf of his father for any embarrassment caused.

"Fabio is very sorry and upset this has happened," he said, according to The Sun.

"We had told the FA there would not be any ratings appearing on any of the England players.

"So to find out that the opposite has happened just a day later was something we were unhappy about.

"There is no commercial value in this to Fabio - he was just interested to see and compare how the statistics would compare with his own evaluations.

"These are not Fabio's ratings and we are now looking to have his name removed from the title."
