Former Sunderland captain Michael Gray says sacked manager Paolo di Canio got it wrong during his final days in charge.
Gray, 39, said: "Publicly, he has criticised a few of his players but some things you keep in the dressing room.
"You criticise your players face-to-face. When you say things in front of the cameras, dressing rooms can become very strong.
"Paolo Di Canio is going to say what he thinks - he doesn't hold back - and maybe he did lose the dressing room in the end.''
