BREAKING NEWS: Paolo Di Canio sacked from Sunderland


Sunderland Football Club have announced this evening that they have parted company with manager Paolo Di Canio.

The Italian boss, who took over at The Stadium of Light after a successful spell at Swindon Town, soon became a bit of a hero in the North, especially after he guided The Black Cats to a 3-0 win against fierce-rivals Newcastle United.

However, this season has been completely different.

After signing over 11 players this summer, Sunderland have only picked up one point from their opening five games.

The club released the following statement on their official website:

Sunderland AFC confirms that it has parted company with head coach Paolo Di Canio this evening.

Kevin Ball will take charge of the squad ahead of Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup game against Peterborough United and an announcement will be made in due course regarding a permanent successor.

The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paolo and his staff and wishes them well for the future.
