Di Canio will not talk about politics
- From the section Football
Paolo Di Canio refuses to answer questions from reporters on whether he is a fascist during his first news conference as Sunderland head coach.
The former West Ham player's appointment prompted the resignation of ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband from the club's board because of Di Canio's "past political statements", but the club issued a statement saying the claims are insulting to both the "integrity of the club" and their new manager.
