Paolo Di Canio's turbulent reign as Sunderland manager is over after the Italian and the club parted company.

The 45-year-old's departure was confirmed by the Black Cats on Sunday, a little more than 24 hours after a 3-0 defeat at West Brom left them rooted to the foot of the Barclays Premier League table.

A statement said: "Sunderland AFC confirms that it has parted company with head coach Paolo Di Canio this evening."
