Di Canio Got More Than He Expected
Paolo Di Canio feels his side are moving in the right direction after they came from behind to beat Tottenham 3-1 and secure their place in the final of the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong.
Paolo Di Canio: "A win is always good but the way it came made me happy because it is the first official game in a tournament against one of the best sides in the (Premier) League.
"The pitch wasn't good but the team have made a sort of revolution playing at this level.
"I saw many things that made me happy and we want to create a clear identity.
"We did OK. There is still a job to do but I am very satisfied and we are going to work harder because we won only one game.
"We still don't know each other but we went 1-0 down and came back to win 3-1 in style.
"Today I saw what I want to see at this stage of the season. To be honest, I saw a bit more than I expected."
