Sunderland sack Paolo Di Canio

Postby Hams » Sun Sep 22, 2013 9:27 pm

Sunderland have sacked Paolo Di Canio following their 3-0 defeat at West Brom.

The Black Cats have fallen to the bottom of the table without a win in the PL so far this season.

The Italian manager only won 2 out of 14 league matches that he was in charge of during his time there.

During the summer he brought in 14 foreign players into the club and sold their best player Sessignon.

It appears there was some sort of coup by Sunderland's players last night which resulted in Di Canio being sacked.

Maybe if the team had shown a similar sort of passion on the pitch like their ex coach they wouldn't be bottom of the league.

The regime was so strict that that apparently even the tea lady wasn't allowed to speak to the players.

It was just one example of the strict regime that Paolo Di Canio had introduced like with the banning of Tomato ketchup etc.

Breaking news just in that Gus Poyet could be announced very soon as Sunderland's next manager.

We still don't know why he was sacked from Brighton?

well banning Ketchup is more of a personal opinion by Di Canio , that chemicals in the sauce could cause problems with players stomachs . I hear that Di Canio challenged the players to call the owner Ellis Short if they wanted him to be sacked. It looks like they did just that ... :lol:

ironic that he's been sacked for pretty much the very reason he was employed.

Sunderland have confirmed that Gus Poyet is their new manager who has signed a 2 year deal at Stadium of Light.
