Before he got the sack, Paulo Di Canio was quoted as saying the following:
'It is my responsibility to receive their negative energy. It was a bad day for everybody. I wanted to show them I will never give up. We have to keep together. I still believe in myself. I will never change.'
'The players need to release the rubbish from their brains. They have to have more confrontation, more anger with each other.'
'They need to look into each other's eyes. They lost their belief after 20 minutes. They turned their faces away. They must try to discover their mentality.'
The bad news is that he doesn't manage Sunderland anymore. The good news is, Nicky Gumbel is rumoured to be putting in a bid for him to ghost-write his Twitter account.
