Sir Alex Ferguson feels Paolo Di Canio will do a good job in helping Sunderland in coming season.

The Italian has received criticisms after describing himself as a fascist since taking over Martin O’Neill’s place after being sacked following a 1-0 loss to Manchester United in the Premier League.

Ferguson, however, feels differently for Di Canio, and thinks that his passion for the game will help the team defevlop an attacking style, which is ultimately more attractive.

“I must confess to a liking for the fellow and his approach to the game,” Ferguson told reporters.

“As I wrote the other week, he wears his heart on his sleeve and I like his football philosophy, wanting to play the ball on the ground rather than in the air.

“I have this picture in my mind of him being in the technical area pointing to the sky and then the ground in an effort to get his players to keep the ball down.

“He has a tough challenge on his hands with his fight to keep Sunderland in the Premier League.”
