It’s been a busy week in world football. England manager Fabio Capello trimmed his squad down to the final 23, with Arsenal’s Theo Walcott the biggest surprise exclusion. Liverpool finally sacked manager Rafa Benitez after a dreadful season that saw them finish 7th in the Premier League, with Reds legend Kenny Dalglish given the task of finding a new gaffer at Anfield. And former Chelsea manager took his first managerial job in La Liga, with the 47 year old taking the reigns at Real Madrid after winning the Champions League and Serie A with Inter Milan. Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard has been linked with a move to Madrid, having easily made the England 2010 World Cup squad and he will be a key player in South Africa. Here’s Stevie G stepping off the plane taking a close look at his phone, but who’s sent him a text and what does it say?
