Paolo Di Canio won his first match as Sunderland manager and that too in the local derby against Newcastle United. Stephane Sessegnon scored for the Black Cats in the first half, assisted by James McClean. Newcastle did equalize later but the Papiss Cisse goal was ruled offside, which it wasn’t.
The other two goals came from two brilliant strikes by Adam Johnson and David Vaughan.
All 3 goals got a manic Paolo Di Canio celebration. Watch it here.
