With that said Di Canio does demonstrate a law-abiding nature. Whilst at West Ham he famously stopped himself from scoring as Everton goalkeeper Paul Gerrard was injured in front of his own goal – instead opting to catch the ball so Gerrard could be treated.
It is fair to say that Di Canio has had a very fruitful and colourful career on the pitch and in the dugout. He does bring about him an air of passion and he oozes confidence and has the upmost poise in his own ability.
Di Canio insists he is ready but the step up may have come too soon. It would be a shame to see him rush to be awarded the Reading hot seat just for the sake of it but with that particular job would be a lightened sense of pressure.
Despite Reading’s precarious position, relegation under Di Canio’s tenure would allow for him to construct a side worthy of promotion next season. If he did manage to keep Reading up, it’s a sure thing that everyone at the club would be treated to pizza by the legend himself.
