Capello Index Good Source For Analyzing Soccer Players

Ooo, look - a duplicate post with my other blog.

No matter.

The Capello Index - named after soccer manager Fabio Capello - was developed by Italian software company Wyscout.

Capello, of course, is widely regarded as one of the all-time great managers having managed AC Milan, Real Madrid and England's national side.

It is no surprise such an index would be created by an analytical mind like Capello.

Sticking to the topic of soccer, two national sides headed to Brazil in 2014 will have Italian coaches conducting their aspirations of winning the World Cup - Capello with Russia and Alberto Zaccheoroni (Japan). A third coach, Giovanni Trappatoni (incidentally, also a legendary winning manager) was not able to get his Republic of Ireland side to qualify.

The duo will join Azzurri manager Cesare Prandelli next year to make it a trio of Italian mangers.
