Sunderland boss Di Canio not panicking over slow season start

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio isn't panicking over their slow start to the season.

Di Canio insists results will turn around.

"I wanted a good start to the season," he told the Sunderland Echo. "I wanted us to start really well, but I was not relying entirely on getting points from the opening three games.

"This is a long season and over the course of it, the potential of teams will come out and I believe that, as a squad, we have great potential.

"That won't happen straight away though, the real potential of clubs will only start to emerge in November, December time, after 14 or 15 games.

"It might be more, it might be 20, but I'm sure that, by the end of the season, we will demonstrate our quality.

"I'm not worried. We wanted to make a great start but we will develop and we will improve."
