Emotional Tribute From Sunderland Boss!
Paolo Di Canio dedicated the stunning derby victory at Newcastle to his late mother.
Paolo Di Canio: "Can I tell you something?
"Sometimes, some special things have to remain inside yourself.
"It's not good to share with others because it's very deep inside yourself.
"But I believe in this thing. Before the kick-off, I saw the face of my Mama smiling.
"Exactly yesterday, it was one year since she passed away.
"Exactly one year ago, there was the same situation. I was in the dug-out the day after she passed away and we won the game - I was at Swindon - and today, it has happened again.
"For this, I have to thank not only my Mama, otherwise my Dad - he is next to her, but today, he is going to be upset.
"But Dad, Mama was special today, so my dedication goes to her today, to my Mam."
