Although Di Canio knows that players from other countries often take time to settle in the English game, he expects the attraction of Premier League football to help motivate his new charges.
Paolo Di Canio: "The players that have come from abroad have already good experience, they played really good football abroad, but English football is the best football in the world, more physical, more exciting in every game.
"In other countries, in Italy and in Spain, there are some games that are easy in some ways.
"Here there is nothing easy even when you play against Macclesfield in the cup.
"So for them, it will be a good challenge, and also because in here, everywhere you go to play, you can see there is a hot atmosphere, a beautiful stadium.
"This can happen only in England, this is the truth, so for them it should be a big occasion to play at the top level in the best league in the world.
"They have all the ingredients to try to give their best."
