Ex-Sunderland boss Di Canio linked with Bristol City

Former Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is being linked with Bristol City.

Former Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is being linked with Bristol City.

The Mail on Sunday says Di Canio wants a swift return after being sacked by Sunderland and has support among some of the hierarchy at Ashton Gate where manager Sean O’Driscoll is under pressure despite Saturday’s 4-2 win at Carlisle.

The 45-year-old Italian has experience of the lower leagues and made an impact as Swindon manager, winning the League Two title in 2012 before resigning the following season after a change of club ownership.

But he lost his job at Sunderland after collecting one point in five games and sparking a dressing-room mutiny following harsh criticism of players.
