Martin O'Neill has blasted Paolo Di Canio for comments he made after succeeding him as Sunderland boss in 2013 and insists the Italian "couldn't manage a fish supper."After less than two years at the Stadium of Light former Celtic manager O'Neill was sacked in March 2013, with the Black Cats a point above the Premier League drop-zone with seven games to play.

Di Canio, who scored 15 goals in 37 games for Celtic in the 1996/97 season, then made the step up to the hot seat from League One side Swindon Town, and despite leading Sunderland to safety at the end of the season, was sacked in the following September after just 13 games in charge.The controversial Rome-born coach was known for his strict approach to fitness, and banned his players from drinking coffee and coca-cola.

Shortly after his arrival, the ex-West Ham and Lazio star claimed that the Sunderland squad at his disposal lacked both "mental and physical fitness", firing shots at previous manager O'Neill.But in a discussion about a similar situation at English top-flight club Nottingham Forest on talkSPORT, O'Neill warned current managers about criticising colleagues that came before them and then and then made his feelings about Di Canio's managerial credentials very clear. "We have referenced player fitness there", he said. "I was at the manager at Sunderland and when I left, that fantastic Italian manager Paolo Di Canio came in.

Including pre-season, he lasted about 16 weeks there and finally lost his job because the players weren't fit enough themselves.
