Di Canio wants nastier side

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio has ordered his players to uncover a nasty streak as they seek to bounce back from their opening-day disappointment against Fulham at the Stadium of Light.

We weren't really ferocious. We have to be nasty in terms of our football.

I don't want to say we had a clear identity but a big part of the puzzle is clear. I think we did well but it's obvious we can do much better.

– Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio
