Paolo Di Canio: "I have a huge appetite for this job, for doing well at Sunderland, but hearing the fans, after the week we had had, has only made me more determined.
"Now I will sacrifice a part of my life for this club. I was always going to work hard for the club, for the board, but to have the fans behind me means so much to me.
"I know football is a business, but the support of the fans has only increased my inner motivation and for that I thank them. I have promised them 26 hours a day, but maybe now I have to make it 27!"
