Ferguson gives support to Di Canio

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson has admitted he has a soft spot for Paolo Di Canio. “As I wrote the other week, he wears his heart on his sleeve and I like his football philosophy, wanting to play the ball on the ground rather than in the air. “I have this picture in my mind of him being in the technical area pointing to the sky and then the ground in an effort to get his players to keep the ball down. “He has a tough challenge on his hands with his fight to keep Sunderland in the Premier League.” Di Canio faces a baptism of fire at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, when defeat would send Sunderland hurtling into the relegation zone should Wigan beat QPR. Press Associationcenter_img Di Canio’s appointment as Sunderland manager has been overshadowed by the furore over his links to fascism, which after three days of hot debate, finally triggered a statement from him in which he denied supporting the ideology. Ferguson has not got involved in that particular argument. However, speaking to United Review ahead of Manchester United’s derby encounter with City on Monday, Ferguson said he does like Di Canio’s management philosophy. “I must confess to a liking for the fellow and his approach to the game,” said Ferguson. last_img read more
