Fabio Capello scores a Vauxhall Insignia

Fabio Capello scores a Vauxhall Insignia

Fabio Capello has said he is "delighted" to be behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer Elite.

The carmaker handed the vehicle over to the England manager as part of its sponsorship of the national Football Association (FA).

Capello said that taking the motor out on the road reminds him of the old days when he was building his career in Italy.

"I have very fond memories of driving an Opel many years ago," he explained, adding that he saw the automaker, Vauxhall's sister company in Europe, as "lucky".

Managing director of Vauxhall Duncan Aldred said he was "delighted" that the manager had decided to take home an Insignia, explaining that the Italian seemed excited about the brand when it first announced its sponsorship with the FA.

"In January, we were approached by Fabio about the possibility of driving a Vauxhall," he stated.

The Insignia comes in three models - a four-door saloon, a five-door hatchback and a sports tourer.
