Buon compleanno, Paolo

Birthday boy photo-special!

Any Sunderland fans celebrating their birthday today share it with the Black Cats' head coach Paolo Di Canio.

There's no time for the Italian to celebrate turning 45, as he's hard at work - as ever -  on the training pitch with his squad in his home country as preparations continue ahead of the 2013-14 season. 

Buon compleanno, Paolo!
