Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio says he's no instant hero.
The new Black Cats boss is a massive hit with fans after last Sunday’s 3-0 derby thrashing of Newcastle.
But the controversial successor to Martin O’Neill says he should not be acclaimed even if he keeps the club in the top flight.
Di Canio said: “I don’t want to be a hero now or when we stay up. It is not the right time.
“If we stay up it will be a fantastic step towards a good future but you cannot be a hero after one, two or 20 games.
“I don’t even want to be a hero next year.
“But in 10 years if I became the best manager in this club’s history they can call me a hero.
“When I deliver a trophy it will be a special thing.”
