Di Canio happy with policy

Sunderland boss Paolo Di CanioPaolo Di Canio claims he will have the final word on who Sunderland buy in the transfer market.

Milan-based Roberto Di Fanti is expected to be named as a new director of football at the Stadium of Light in the near future and he will have a say on how the transfer system works.

Di Canio insists he is happy with the arrangements whereby the owner and the director of football will be involved and claims he will have the final say.

“I know that the club has a plan,” he said. “And the picture is clear before me of how it will work.

“I am head coach, the others have to handle the financial situation. I have said to them we need this type of player, this type of quality, in this position or that position.

“So show me the players we can go and get, and I will tell them ‘yes, this player is OK’, or ‘no this player is not’.”
