Swindon boss Di Canio welcomes Bolton link

Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio has denied claims he is in line for the Bolton job but admits he is happy to be linked with other clubs, reports BBC Sport. "It's better than not reading your name," Di Canio told BBC Wiltshire.

"We can joke about it but it doesn't change that I am working for Swindon, so there's no need to think about it."

Di Canio led Town to the League Two title last season - his first year in management - and was awarded with a new three-year contract to keep him at the County Ground until 2015.

"It means people think I have already done a good job," he continued.

"They look at the statistics and think 'there is Di Canio, who has won nine games from 15 already'. Including last year, I've had more than 61% victories.

"It means they are looking at the people who have got good results at lower levels and that is something you appreciate.

"But it's not the club but the people that bet money who put you in second or third [favourite]. Before I signed for Swindon I was linked to West Ham and yet nobody contacted me."
