Reports suggested the pair were at loggerheads with each other following Di Canio's public criticism of O'Shea for his sending-off in the recent defeat to Crystal Palace.

However, O'Shea has moved to dispel the rumours and revealed Di Canio called him to apologise and that he has no problems with the Italian's man-management style.

"He rang me the next day, and all is nice," said O'Shea. "Getting criticised is one of those things and that is his style of management.

"What he had to say to me is private, but let me put it to you this way, it was him calling me.

"The criticism does not bother me in the slightest. It is water off a duck's back to someone like me.

"Because he is such a passionate man, everything he does is getting hyped up. The only thing I am annoyed about is the fact that I let the team down."

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.

was reticent with this signing, bringing our outlay on left backs to £50m + a Nani loan (and still paying his wages). However, if he's better than Pele then who am I to complain...
