Sunderland sack coach

Premier League club Sunderland have parted company with head coach Paolo Di Canio following the side's 3-0 loss at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

"Sunderland AFC confirms that it has parted company with head coach Paolo Di Canio this (Sunday) evening," the club said on Sunday.

The Italian leaves Sunderland bottom of the Premier League with one point from five matches. Di Canio was abused by travelling supporters on Saturday and was later highly critical of his players. "The players need to release the rubbish from their brains. They have to have more confrontation, more anger with each other," he said.
