Sunderland legend Niall Quinn has backed Paolo di Canio to keep the club up.
â€śPaolo Di Canio has brought an incredible zest to the team right now,â€ť Quinn told the Evening Chronicle. â€śHow long it lasts is the big question.
â€śBut hopefully it will last for a long, long time. They will do enough, I think, to stay up, and good luck to them, I think it will be great.
â€śI had seven years at Sunderland as a player nearly and six odd years in an administrative role and the club gets to you a little bit.
â€śIâ€™m delighted to see it going so well. Thereâ€™s a lot of good people behind the scenes that nobody knows about. So Iâ€™m thrilled with that.
â€śI have to feel for Martin Oâ€™Neill, who is a great manager with great history and it ended a little bluntly for him.
â€śBut overall, Sunderland are going grand now.â€ť
