Fabio Capello Plans to Hire Tutor to Learn Russian


20.07.2012

Fabio Capello, who will officially become the Russian football squad’s head coach in the next few days, is planning to start learning Russian, ITAR-TASS reports.
 
According to his agent, Fabio Capello, 66, will permanently reside in Moscow.
 
Fabio who’s known to be a polyglot in the football world wants to hire a tutor who, he hopes, will help him master Russian in just a few months.
 
Capello is expected to sign his contract on Friday. His salary won’t exceed six million euro a year. This figure is much lower than the ones mentioned by various media outlets.

Sergey Sinelnik, an honored traveler of Russia, has covered tens of thousands of miles in sea runs, thousands of kilometers through great deserts of the world, climbing the highest peaks, and that's not all. And yet his main passion is sea. For several years now Sergey, his wife and children have been circumnavigating the globe on the wooden Pilgrim, a replica of traditional boats of Russian coast-dwellers – the Koch. And before that, he reached the shores of Australia on the Rusich boat, which is actually just a large wooden skiff. And the ancient Slavic vessel was a smash there.
There is a place in Finland, where they tell about the history of Russia in 15 languages every day, without a lunchbreak. Sveaborg (or Suomenlinna in Finnish) is a fortress which is now part of Helsinki city limits. It was founded by Sweden in the 18th century, then conquered and reconstructed by Russia, which owned the fortress for more than a hundred years, and passed it to Finland in 1917 following the country’s independence.
