Sunderland boss Di Canio happy to keep talking up Giaccherini

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is getting behind his big money Italian signing Emanuele Giaccherini.

Di Canio says the 28-year-old's "huge" technical ability has left him confident of Giaccherini's capacity to adapt to the demands of the Premier League.

"I'm sure Giaccherini will not prove to be another expensive misfit Italian landed in the Premier League," said Di Canio.

"Giaccherini, I am absolutely convinced, will impress everyone because in addition to having huge technical qualities, since he is one of the best players in one of the strongest national squads in the world, is also proving he is able to adapt well to the football being played in England."
