Sunderland Players Could Get Holiday Blues!
Paolo Di Canio has threatened to shorten his players' summer break if they let him down at Spurs this weekend.
Paolo Di Canio: “I have told them that I won’t judge them on the last game but the last two training sessions.
“That will give me a clear picture about my players because now they know what we want from them.
“I told them we can win, draw or lose with dignity, respecting the club’s name and the fans who follow them.
“But if not I will reduce their holiday.
“I will give them the minimum I can give to them, which is four weeks, 28 days instead of 38 or 40.
“We have to change the mentality.
“Just because I fell into the trap against Aston Villa, I don’t want to fall into that trap again.
“I’m sure four or five individuals don’t need this kind of situation.
“But many of the others must realise we need rules to change the mentality and use punishment in some way.
“Until the day the players can go on to the field and I can remain at home, I have to use any manner to change their mentality.”
