What are your thoughts on Paolo di Canio's rant against his young goalkeeper Wes Foderingham?
Good man management which will teach the player a lesson? or complete overreaction to ridicule the goalkeeper in public and has ruined the youngster's career?
Well that is Di Canio's managment style, it didnt work for Leon Clarke last season. It depends on the players temprament, is he going to be devastated by the comments or determined to prove Di Canio wrong.
