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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
