Boss already plotting ahead of home debut.

It was business as usual for Paolo Di Canio in the aftermath of Sunderland’s derby win at Newcastle.

Having caught the team bus back to Wearside, Sunderland’s head coach headed back to the training ground with his staff, declaring: “We have work to do.”

Di Canio led emotional celebrations at the full-time whistle but is remaining focused with five games of the season remaining.

Speaking after the game, he added: “I know this game will go down in history – but it will be even more important if we build on this and climb up the table.”
