Paolo Di Canio is interviewed by Sky Sports News next to a picture of Paolo Di Canio

Paolo Di Canio’s ego clearly holds on bounds.

Sky Sports News recorded an ‘EXCLUSIVE’ interview with everyone’s favourite madcap Italian on Wednesday in which Di Canio finally broke his silence on why he left League One leaders Swindon Town.

Di Canio categorically stated that he would not be returning to the Swindon hotseat despite the fact that new owners are now at the helm, however the whole interview was overshadowed by a picture lurking in the background of the shot.

Right above Di Canio’s left shoulder was a framed picture of beefed up, suited Di Canio with his arms folded.

The Di Canio portrait was striking.
