Former Hammer backs Di Canio

Football : West Ham United v Middlesbrough LeagueFormer Hammer Trevor Sinclair has suggested on twitter that fellow former Hammer Paolo Di Canio would be a good managerial appointment for West Ham.

When Sinclair was asked who he would like to see as the next West Ham manager the former winger answered “Slav or Di Canio and I know what people’s reaction might be to the latter but feel he loves the club and would do well”

In 2013 Sinclair described Di Canio ‘as mad as a hatter’ while commenting on his fascism comment.

“Paolo’s comments should be taken with a pinch of salt because he’s as mad as a hatter. But I feel he should apologise for upsetting so many people with his actions and comments and make it clear once and for all if he is or isn’t racist or fascist.” said Sinclair at the time about his old pal.

  1. What – is he for real? He needs to get his bumps felt!

  2. If he could calm himself down it could be a good partnership Slav and Paolo,but with the perception of some of his beliefs away from football I can’t see it happening with the current owners.

  3. Hahahahahahahaha

  4. He wears his heart on his sleeve and says stupid things at times but so do most successful
    Managers,he was doing great things at Swindon till the owners lied and changed there attitudes and it cost them there future and club,
    The players revolt at Sunderland by mediocre ex Man And others,because they were told to train harder and give something back for there wages cost him his job,if they had played and put in as much effort as Paolo they would have finished in the top half of the league,
    I would give him a chance as much as anyone that’s left in the frame.

  5. Lol,would love to see him telling Kevin ‘slowlane’ Nolane double training sessions for being a fat bast*rd 😉

  6. I don’t know if Paolo can be the right manager, but if he puts all the passion and the heart like when he was a player, well… why not. As bubs writes, he did well at Swindon and when he was at Sunderland there were players like Fletcher who came off as prima donna… Di canio has charisma, he’s smart, he loves West Ham and West Ham love him. That’s not a bad start… however we’ll have to wait and see. Anyway at this moment Bilic is my favorite. 😉

  7. No!

  8. Sinclair to Di Canio …… GOAL OF THE CENTURY

  9. Di Canio has Premier League experience which is one of the criteria for the West Ham position.He is loved by the masses and he loves the club.There are a lot worse out there but I sense the owners will get it right with so much at stake.I hope Brady has little or no say in the matter.

  10. Any manager is going to be a lottery until we see how the squad takes to there style of football,that’s the name of the game just look what has happened with Rodgers or Pardew
    It’s a roller coaster,
    I want passion loyalty and back bone back at our club,exciting,attacking adventurous football,with that at times that brings defeat and no points but I would rather win 1 in 3 than draw 3 and get the same points,I can’t have negativity in my life,it’s to short,
    Bring on the bold life
    DI CANIO FOR MANAGER ( get your teeth in to that wetpants )

  11. That’s why he,s a former hammer,probably a good friend, but crap comment!!
