Football pundits had mixed reactions on Twitter to head coach Paolo Di Canio's exit from Sunderland AFC:
Di Canio signed 14 players, brought in an entire back-room staff, and now he's gone. Football madness. Match that Downton!
Di Canio sacked. Not sure what to make of that. He saved Sunderland last season but they have been awful so far this season.
Suprised about di canio? Not me,not just about the results, treatment of players big factor also
