QPR boss Harry Redknapp was unaware of his political views, but questions WHO is behind the campaign to destroy Di Canio's Sunderland career.
Harry Redknapp: "I'd be a liar if I could sit here and tell you that I knew what a fascist was.
"I'm sorry, I'm not educated enough so I couldn't tell you what their beliefs are.
"I don't know what Paolo's beliefs are, he's not a racist, that's for sure and is important.
"I've never discussed anything like that with him.
"I honestly didn't know that he had views that were different.
"No one did until he went to Sunderland, it seems! It's all come out now though.
"Where was all this talk when he was at Swindon? Why's it suddenly come out now he's gone to Sunderland?
"Why didn't someone write about it when he was at Swindon if it's upsetting everyone? It didn't make the papers when he was at Swindon."
