Alfred N'Diaye: Di Canio keeping Sunderland players grounded

Alfred N'Diaye says Sunderland players aren't getting carried away with their derby win.

Alfred N'Diaye says Sunderland players aren't getting carried away with their derby win.

Despite the celebrations on Wearside, boss Paolo Di Canio reminded his players in the dressing room that their season is far from over – and N’Diaye believes Sunderland still need to win two of their remaining five games to guarantee their Premier League status.

“The manager congratulated us after the game, but he told us that the season is not over just because we have won the derby,” said the Frenchman.

“There is still a lot of work to do. He said we need to concentrate on Saturday’s game against Everton now, and then Aston Villa.

“I think we still need two more wins. We have got some big games coming up and we need to win them.”
