Di Canio says everyone at Sunderland has clean slate

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio says every player has a chance under him.

Di Canio recalled Connor Wickham and Matt Kilgallon for defeat at Chelsea last weekend.

"We have a group of young, talented players, [some of whom] have not played a lot of games this year," he told

"Now they have a chance and can deliver a good job for us.

"I found [some of] them, when I came in, sad in some way. When you're not involved, often it's difficult.

"The fact is now we have reset everything. Everyone can have their chance."
