PFA fight Sunderland boss

Sunderland boss Paolo Di CanioPlayers’ Union boss Gordon Taylor has hit out at Sunderland manager Paulo Di Canio after a fall out with the players.

The Italian has been cracking the whip since his arrival at the Stadium of Light and handed out club fines to players involved in a late night out last week whilst at the same time telling them of the responsibility they have to set a good example to the youngsters at the club.

The players in question have now apparently complained to the PFA who are said to be less than impressed with the way the Italian has gone about things.

“He cannot be a law unto himself,” PFA chief Gordon Taylor told the Daily Mirror.

“We’re aware of player unrest at some comments made publicly, and other situations. A number of players are involved.

“We’re aware of Paolo Di Canio’s comments – it’s something we had to deal with at Swindon as well.

“Our rules for discipline are agreed with the Premier League and Football Association.”
