Italy´s World Cup winning coach Marcello Lippi believes new England manager Fabio Capello may have to drop a high-profile player who "is not on the same wavelength" as the others if his team is to find success.

Lippi, who was also linked with the England job before Capello´s appointment, was not afraid to drop star players during his reign with the Azzurri, and he told Sky Italia that Capello would also have to make some difficult decisions.

He said: "He will need to construct a team, the national team is not the selection of the best players of the country, but in order to make a team you may also need to have to drop an important player that perhaps is not in the same wavelength as the others."
