Di Canio declines fascism questions
New Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio refused to answer questions about whether he holds fascist beliefs in his first news conference as boss.
The Italian described the controversy surrounding his appointment as "ridiculous and pathetic" after taking over from Martin O'Neill.
Ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband resigned from the board because of Di Canio's "past political statements".
"I don't have to answer this question any more," said Di Canio.
