London, Mar 3 : England manager Fabio Capello, who is plagued by off-field problems involving John Terry, Wayne Bridge and Ashley Cole, has blamed football's millionaire culture for the players' bad behaviour.
The England boss insisted that his stars must act more responsibly.
"They are important players. They have to be an example to the children, for all the fans. For that reason, they have to stay careful in every moment and sacrifice something in their lives," Capello said.
"They are young players, young boys, rich boys and this is the problem," The Sun quoted Capello, as saying.
Capello spoke to his players about their responsibilities before training on Monday morning and made it clear that he wants no more scandals ahead of the World Cup finals.
"I hope so and it will be really important that the players in this last period have to be careful in their private lives at every moment. I think the next three months will be OK for all the players," he said.
Capello also appealed to the Wembley crowd not to boo Terry tonight ahead of friendly against Egypt.
"I think the fans have to support us in every moment. They have to understand the private life of some players has not been so good but that on the pitch it will be different.
"We are dressed in the England shirt and it''s important for us that they help us every moment. I know they are worried after what''s happened. But I hope they will help us," Capello said. (ANI)
