Paolo Di Canio has said 'it is important to respect the dignity of the club' after Sunderland AFC's Phil Bardsley was pictured lying on the floor of a casino in a pile of £50 notes.
Despite Bardsley denying being drunk, Di Canio has cut him from the team for their game against Tottenham.
At a press conference Di Canio was asked about the pictures, he said:
"I don't want to change the culture of the people, but I told them the day before we will be more strict, I will judge you more carefully because now we need to improve"
