Di Canio Is Not Magic!
Paolo Di Canio feels his own arrival as manager has been a key factor in Stephane Sessegnon's improvement and has urged the 28-year-old to keep working hard.
Paolo Di Canio: "Stephane is a talent, a great player.
"If Stephane works as he's done in the last two games he's a dangerous opponent but I can tell you, from the games I watched on television prior to signing my contract here, Stephane did not give his best."For me, your best is when you are playing with your brain and Stephane is now playing with his brain.
"But when I watched the Manchester United game on television Stephane only played when he had the ball or was in a position to ask for it."There are times when I will allow him freedom because he is a fantasy player, like I was, and if you give them too much advice it can put them under pressure. I hope my advice can help him as it has done in the last two games."It is not difficult. Di Canio is not magic. I just know football. The players are intelligent and they can see the benefits of working hard."
