Di Canio to last the season at Swindon?


PAOLO DI CANIO is odds-on (4/7) not to survive the season as Swindon Town manager, according to Ladbrokes.

The Italian is 5/4 to still be in charge after the last league game and it’s 12/1 he steers them to the League Two title. Town are 5/2 to be promoted under him and it’s 16/1 they drop out of the football league pyramid

Di Canio is also 6/1 to manage either Sheffield Wednesday, Celtic or West Ham before the end of 2013.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It’s not the most obvious managerial appointment and we expect the fiery Italian to be out before the season finishes.”
