Savage: Di Canio deserved more time at Sunderland

Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage believes Paolo di Canio deserved more time at Sunderland.

Di Canio was sacked by Sunderland yesterday.

Savage told BBC Sport: "I think Sunderland should have at least given Di Canio until the Newcastle game at home to see if he could turn it around. It was wearing thin though.

"Apologies to fans after games, it seemed to be all about him and not the team - a bit harsh, though.

"Lots of players signed and one point in five games is not good enough, but he kept them up last year when they seemed down."
