PFA issue warning to Di Canio

The Professional Footballers' Association have hit out at Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio over his recent use of club discipline.

Last Updated: 21/05/13 at 14:40 Post Comment

PFA chief Gordon Taylor has warned Di Canio that he cannot be a "law unto himself" after members of Sunderland's squad raised a complaint with their union following a series of club fines.

Di Canio has fined a number of his players after a club night out hit the back page headlines prior to their final game of the season at Tottenham.

The Italian was unapologetic in his public condemnation of some of his players - but now they have brought the PFA in.

And PFA chief Taylor is far from happy with Di Canio.

"He cannot be a law unto himself," 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 [when the Italian was manager] at Swindon as well.

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

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
