Paolo di Canio has no problem with a relegation break clause in his Sunderland contract.

The People says Canio has a clause in his contract that allows Sunderland owner Ellis Short to sack him if the Black Cats are ­relegated from the Premier League.

Such is Di Canio's belief in his abilities that he was happy to accept the condition, despite the fact it could see his reign reduced to just EIGHT WEEKS.
