Sunderland Manager Paolo Di Canio’s 3 Brilliant Goal Celebrations Against Newcastle [VIDEO]

Who would have expected three brilliant goals by Sunderland and three brilliant goal celebrations by manager Paolo Di Canio, which trumped the meager goal celebrations by the players who scored the goal?

Despite a goal by Newcastle United that should have counted but was incorrectly called off because of offside, Sunderland completely dominated Newcastle United at St. James’ Park today beating them 3-0 in a game where they could have easily had two penalty decision awarded their way but weren’t called.

You can take the manager off the pitch, but you can’t take the footballer out of the manager. Expect Di Canio to give his players some additional training next week on how to do a goal celebration. Sessegnon, Johnson and Vaughan — you have a lot of work to do to catch up with your manager.

The win by Sunderland is bad news for Wigan, Stoke City and Aston Villa as Sunderland has leapfrogged all of them and are heading to safety if they continue like they played today.

One Response to Sunderland Manager Paolo Di Canio’s 3 Brilliant Goal Celebrations Against Newcastle [VIDEO]

  1. Fred says:

    Di Canio is quite a character even if he is bonkers. He should definitely win the award for best celebrations by a manager.

    He has Sunderland playing a lot better. They weren’t bad when they lost to Chelsea last week but today they really played well and fully deserved their win.
