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.

However, the list of the most convincing myths about Russia is topped by the one of Russian drinking. It turned out to be so strong and persistent that even the Russians have believed  it. It is not a mere coincidence that our fellow citizens think Russian people have always drunk, and a holiday  feast is considered to be a national tradition. Who made the whole world believe the banal stereotypes? Why do all historians claim the opposite and who benefits from the myth of Russian drinking?
