Sunderland Sack Di Canio
Sunderland have sacked head coach Paolo Di Canio after a poor start to the season that has left the Black Cats bottom of the Premier League table.
The 45-year-old Italian has won three of his 13 matches since being appointed in March and taken only one point from five league games this campaign.
“An announcement will be made in due course regarding a permanent successor,” read a club statement.
In the meantime, coach Kevin Ball will take charge of the first-team squad.
The statement added: “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paolo and his staff and wishes them well for the future.”
