Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio insists there's no panic from the board over their slow start to the season.

Di Canio says owner Ellis Short is still backing him to the hilt.

Di Canio said: "Ellis is very calm because he's intelligent and knows that we have changed completely. I know that he's not excited for our position at the bottom of the table but after Arsenal he was excited to see the team play like this."
