Worst Moment Of Paolo's Managerial Career

05 May 2013 10:55
Paolo Di Canio has revealed he got an instant response from players shattered by their 6-1 defeat at Villa Park last Monday.

Paolo Di Canio: “The Aston Villa result was one of the worst moments of my managerial career because it was such a bad defeat.

“Obviously there’s nothing we can do about it now – in terms of one game, it was very bad – but now we have to make sure one game doesn’t become two games.

“I have let go of the anger I felt though because, on Tuesday, my players showed me exactly the sort of response in training that I wanted from them.

“They have given me confidence after I analysed the game deeply with them. And they have made me believe that Monday against Stoke will be a different story.

“They showed me commitment and desire and I feel for sure that they won’t repeat the performance.

“They are intelligent and they agreed with me – they were of the same opinion that mentally we didn’t have the right approach.

“That won’t be the case against Stoke on Monday.”
