Premier League: Five craziest players (6)

Published Add your comment

Paolo di Canio

Well, GMS feel this particular choice needs little justification, it merely takes a short internet search to pick out any number of eccentric moments for the recently sacked Italian.

It started with his playing days; sitting down and refusing to play on in a match against Bradford City, catching the ball instead of scoring when the Everton 'keeper is down and out of his goal, or pushing over a referee.

His erratic behaviour continued into his managerial career; substituting his goalkeeper after 20 minutes when in charge at Swindon Town, fighting his own players, all kinds of stories about his short tenure at Sunderland and, possibly the final nail in the coffin, standing in front of the Sunderland to apologise after defeat to West Brom.
