Paolo Di Canio Resigns As Swindon Manager

Swindon Town manager Paolo Di Canio has resigned as manager this evening.

A statement released to the Swindon Advertiser says "Following discussions, my representatives put forward a proposal that would secure my future at the club until at least the end of the season and quite possibly beyond as well. This proposal actually reduced the Clubs contractual liabilities to me in the interest of saving Swindon Town FC. At a meeting last Friday the proposed new owners accepted and said they were very happy with the new terms.

"I entered into a temporary arrangement with the proposed new owners to continue in my role as Manager but all this was agreed subject to Football League approval for the purchase of the Club being granted by 5:00pm on Monday 18th February.

"At the time of issuing this statement, I have had no further contact from the proposed new owners and I have been told that unfortunately Football League approval has not been granted yet and therefore my temporary arrangement has ended and my resignation stands."

The Paolo Di Canio era at the County Ground has been by far the most enjoyable time at the County Ground.

Thank you Paolo.
