Guitarist had his photo taken with England coach

Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has revealed he met England coach Fabio Capello – and had his photo taken with him.

The guitarist, speaking in the new issue of NME with Russell Brand, out today (June 2), said he bumped into Capello on a golf course.

“I’d been out with a friend all night and we were on a golf course and he was there,” he explained. “We went over and he agreed to do a photo with us, but he went, ‘Other way,’ and he turned us around so the sun was facing us.”

Pizzorno said that Capello‘s mastery of photography techniques made him think that the manager might just do OK with the England team.

“I think that’s the kind of manager he is,” he said. “He noticed in that little moment that we were in the wrong place ‘cos the sun was in the wrong direction to take a good photo. We’ve got a good chance if he’s noticing shit like that.”
