Former England manager Fabio Capello has warned his successor Roy Hodgson that he will find it hard to create a "winning mentality" before Euro 2012.
Hodgson was appointed on a four-year contract on Tuesday, but must complete the season with his club West Brom before turning his attentions to England's campaign in Poland and Ukraine this summer. The former Liverpool boss already has international experience, but Capello stressed that being a national team manager is not "a normal job".
Quoted in Friday's Times newspaper, Capello said: "As a club manager, you are a manager. As a national team manager, you are a selector. You cannot work with and get the best out of the players all of the time because some are injured, some are not in a top moment, some are unhappy with their club's position, some have a problem with their manager."
