Sunderland Manager, Paolo Di Canio, admits he has a limited amount of time to turn around his side's poor start to the season - but is confident he will. Full article ITV Sport.
Sunderland head coach Paolo Di Canio walked across to speak to fans at the away end of the Hawthorns, at the end of a dismal 3-0 defeat by West Brom.
He applauded and gestured for them to keep their chins up despite a disheartening performance by his team.
The poor performance was compounded by the fact that the first goal came from an ex-Black Cats player, who Di Canio let go on transfer deadline day.
Striker Stephane Sessegnon took just 20 minutes to score on his debut for West Brom.
Further goals came from Ridgewell (76") and Amalfitano (90).
Sunderland had played the final ten minutes with only ten men after Steven Fletcher went off injured, because the maximum three substitutions had already been made.
The Black Cats remain at the bottom of the table, having managed just 1 point so far this season.
Ex-Sunderland striker Stephane Sessegnon has been confirmed in the starting line-up for West Brom's match against his old club. It will be his Baggies debut after leaving the Black Cats in a deadline-day transfer. See ITV Sport for live updates.
Paolo Di Canio, Sunderland Head Coach.
Former Sunderland footballer Stephane Sessegnon could make his West Brom debut against the Black Cats this weekend.
He was granted a work permit this week after completing a deadline day switch. He will be available for his new club when they host Sunderland tomorrow, September 21.
