Former football coach Fabio Capello has paid tribute to Italy great Paolo Rossi, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 64, and he also jovially said that Diego Maradona and he should train in heaven before the tactician is deceased.

The 72-year-old worked with Rossi on Italian television before the World Cup winner had died, and he gave his condolences to the staff at Juventus, where the former had two spells as a player.

“My thoughts go out to those at the Juventus ground, with all that we have said in football terms, to the man that I knew after we worked together on television,” Capello said on Sky Sport .

“You two are playing, you are having fun together Diego and you, train well because when I , I will make you run!”

Rossi, who was the leading goalscorer at the 1982 World Cup, passed away two weeks after Argentina’s 1986 World Cup hero Diego Maradona did.
