Capello cock-up at the Standard

asd2

There are some red faces at the Evening Standard this week after a spot of picture confusion.

In the paper’s Homes & Property supplement, Richard Compton Miller reported in his “Who’s Moving” column that England soccer boss Fabio Capello had now settled in to his £4,500-a-week two-bedroom flat in Knightsbridge and his ‘gangly figure’was now familiar to those living in the neighbouring Duke of York Square, where the bespectacled Italian takes his wife to dine in a local restaurant.

Sadly, his face is not familiar enough to the Standard’s picture desk, which illustrated the story with a picture of Irish builder Michael McElinney, a Capello lookalike. Compton Miller says of the mix-up: ‘A remarkably small number of readers spotted the difference.”
