Giaccherini denies reports of wanting out of Sunderland

Emanuele Giaccherini is happy at Sunderland and does not plan on leaving at the end of the season for a return to Italy. "I want to stay here," the 28 year old told the Sunderland Echo.

"I'm happy here.

"The gaffer has to do what he thinks is right and choose the best team. It's important that I train well and make the most of my chance when he asks me to start.

"(Fabio) Borini and (Adam) Johnson have both been playing well too. The important thing is Sunderland, not me.

"We have a lot of games now and it will be difficult for us to play every three days. But there are 25 players here.

"The gaffer has made a big difference and he knows when to use which players and change the team for the games.

"We saw that against Southampton. There are a lot of good players here and the gaffer can look at things for the next game."
