Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio said his side's celebrations during their Tyne-Wear derby victory over Newcastle United was "a good moment to share with the fans".
The Black Cats earned a famous 3-0 win over their North East rivals with goals from Stephane Sessegnon, Adam Johnson and David Vaughan. Di Canio joined the players in celebrating after each goal and at full-time, and even ruined his trousers whilst sliding on the touchline.
However, speaking after the match the Italian said it was worth it. "I would like to lose my trousers every weekend," he said.
"I wanted to go far but I couldn't because I'm too old. I have only 20 yards in my legs now. This is why I fell down."
He added: "That was a good moment to share with the fans. I was really happy."
Police have released a breakdown of those arrested before, during and after Sunday's derby match as they continue to appeal for information.
Newcastle United have released a statement saying they are "embarrassed and appalled" by the behaviour of fans who clashed with police.
A police horse seen being punched by a football fan is "safe and well" this morning, its police force said.
