Di Canio: 'I Was Too Good For Sunderland!'
Paolo Di Canio claims he was TOO GOOD for Sunderland, but doesn't expect any Premier League manager bursting down the door to sign him.
Paolo Di Canio was dismissed after a 3-0 defeat at West Brom, a result which was reportedly followed a day later by a training ground bust-up with senior players which led them to ask the board to take action.
Di Canio insisted, however, that no argument took place.
Paolo Di Canio: “It never happened.
“There was a typical meeting, as there was after every game to see the clips and analyse the game.
“Maybe there was opinion but this happens in every good family.
“I was too good, my level was too high.
“What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. I can’t wait to have another chance with the right people. I feel a better manager than before.
“Even if I have requests from around Europe I say no.
“There is no space for me in England at the moment but I will wait.
“It would be stupid for a chairman not to call me. Even if it’s at a Championship club with a project.”
