Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio admits a tag of him 'managing by hand grenade' hasn't helped him.
Di Canio endured a losing Premier League debut at Chelsea on Sunday.
He reflected: â€œItâ€™s a label that doesnâ€™t help me, to be honest. In some ways it has caused some problems for me in the past.
â€œThe fact is I brought success to Swindon for 21 months. I donâ€™t know if you can call it a hand-grenade.
â€œIf you are very quiet, if you are 100 per cent a diplomatic person and you donâ€™t want to cope with any problem, probably you are never going to have success. Managers like Jose Mourinho in some way are a hand-grenade, not because in the way he expresses his opinion, but he brings success as well.
â€œIâ€™m not a hand-grenade manager, Iâ€™m a Paolo Di Canio manager. The club donâ€™t have to be worried because we are going to have success.â€™â€™
