Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio has revealed he is enjoying dealing with the pressure of the Premier League despite sitting just three points above the relegation zone.

"My first 40 days in the Premier League? It has been an extraordinary experience," Di Canio told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I got seven points and improved the average of my predecessor.

"But if I don't save the team I'll fail, and it will be chaos again."

The former Swindon Town boss also admitted that he could not rule out managing in his native Italy one day.

"For me, England is a fantastic place to work, but Italy would be a nice challenge too," he added.
