Paolo Di Canio, one of the most eccentric and confident players to grace the game, seems to have carried this persona into his managerial career. 

This Italian showed plenty of character and passion throughout his lengthy career as a player.

Having played for a total of 11 clubs with 532 appearances he certainly has enough experience of the game to be a successful manager and we already know he has the confidence.

Although he stated in an interview he's not sure where his career will take him next, the media still like to speculate on his whereabouts next season.

Having joined Swindon in 2011 as his first managerial job, he managed to gain promotion in his first season. Not a bad start I'd say. He left the post in February 2013 after an eventful year and a half in charge. Promotion in his first season, a Football League Trophy final and one or two stand out touchline moments including a altercation with Leon Clark after losing to Southampton. 

There's no doubt this man can add enthusiasm and confidence to any dressing room he enters but the question still remains where will he go next now that he is currently unemployed? 

Rumours linking him with Reading were rife, after Reading sacked their manager Brian McDermott but it looks more likely they'll move for Gus Poyet. West Ham were also linked with Di Canio but that may purely be based on his success at the club.

It still remains to see where this charismatic professional will end up.
