ECCENTRIC Italian Paolo Di Canio doesn’t hold anything back on the touchline.

The former Sheffield Wednesday striker simply could not keep his emotions in check during Swindon Town’s 2-2 draw with Coventry City at the weekend.

Di Canio, the Robins manager, cut an annoyed, frustrated figure in the technical area despite watching his side fight back from two goals down to snatch a dramatic point.

In a typically frank interview post-match, Di Canio, aged 44, condemned his shot-shy forward line, saying: “We got the ball into the box 32 times and scored twice. We need a top striker if we are to stay near the top.”

Di Canio, who has been linked with the vacant Bolton job, led Swindon to the League One title last year and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final.
