It comes as a rather strange decision by the Sunderland board to sack their manager Paolo Di Canio after only 5 games into the season. Sunderland lost 3-0 to West Brom this Saturday which was their 4th defeat this season and with just a point on board, the Black Cats lie at the very bottom of the table.
The management decided to relieve Di Canio from his duties as the Italian becomes the first manager in the Premier League season to be sacked.
Twenty five minute post match rants, erratic touchline celebrations, assaulting referees, and (just occasionally) moments of absolute genius, and some furious rows with senior players have been the major talking points in Sunderland’s decision to sack him.
Albeit, we have some Twitter reactions that you might be interested in.
