The agent of Sunderland derby hero Fabio Borini insists he's not happy seeing Paolo di Canio sacked.

Marco de Marchi was asked if the Liverpool striker felt better about playing for new manager Gus Poyet.

"No, Fabio always works for himself and for the team regardless of the technical or sporting director," he told TMW.

"Changing the coach does not change his way of being, to train and play.

"He always does his best to be ready when he is sent onto the field, and just thinks to improve.

"It would not be fair to a professional like Di Canio to say that the change of coach has helped, because it is not so."
