RUFC - Fans watching me not their team

RUFC - Fans watching me not their team

Rotherham United fans were too busy watching what Swindon boss, Paolo di Canio was doing last Saturday to help their team get more out of the game. Says who? Well Paolo di Canio of course!

The Italian, who was sat in the stands for the game against the Millers at Don Valley last weekend was booed on and off during the game, especially towards the end when he was asked by stewards to sit down after getting excited and waving his arms about.

Speaking to The Advertiser, Sig di Canio, said, 'It was difficult watching from the stands because I was speaking as if the players are next to me. Some fans probably thought I was mad. (Ed note: I don't think there's much 'think' about it). The fans were fine with me but, when I am in that situation, I forget them because my passion is my passion.

'I received a fantastic reception from them and I would like to say thank you to everyone around me. It was a joy to go into a stadium where all the fans wave to you. (Got a sense of humour then this Italian).

'In the final four minutes they were distracted from supporting their team by concentrating on me and it was like one against four thousand. That is what I wanted. They were watching me and not supporting their team.'

Clearing the situation up about him being allowed a mobile 'phone to keep in contact with the bench, even though he was serving a one-match ban, Sig di Canio said, 'I had a special 'phone and was speaking to the dugout. The 'phone was allowed by the Football Association so it was not breaking the strict rule about what sort of instrument you are using.'

He just love it doesn't he.
