Di Canio Slams Wes Foderingham

Di Canio Slams Wes Foderingham

Swindon Town this week are embroiled in another row between player and manager as Paolo Di Canio slammed goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and told him to apologise for his arrogant, ignorant ways or he will be allowed to leave the club.

In a shocking turn of events 20 minutes into Town`s 4-1 loss to Preston, Di Canio hauled off Foderingham and replaced him with Lee Bedwell. As Foderingham left the pitch he tore his gloves off and exchanged words with Di Canio before kicking a water bottle onto the pitch whilst he headed to the tunnel.

Following the match Di Canio gave his reasons for hauling off the best keeper we have had since Fraser Digby, "Today what he did, it`s not only the mistake that can happen to everyone. The arrogance later, when he started moaning to the others, that was the worst thing for me because it let me realise that a player doesn`t recognise his mistakes that was clear miles away, that was a rubbish mistake.

"Today he started behaving as the worst professional; arrogant, ignorant in some way - not as a person, as an athlete - I have ever seen.
"If he doesn`t come out and say sorry to the fans, for the professionalism in general, he is out from my team. I don`t want any argument from the fans 'we play Oxford, we have a season` - no.

This marks the second time this season Paolo has fell out with a key player with Paul Caddis leaving the club last week. Coincidentally, Caddis was named Birmingham City`s man of the match on Saturday.
