Di Canio blasts Foderingham
Paolo Di Canio branded his goalkeeper Wes Foderingham the worst professional he has ever worked with after watching Swindon get beaten 4-1 by Preston.
Goalkeeper Foderingham was substituted after only 21 minutes at Deepdale with his side trailing 2-0 before a heated confrontation with his manager in the tunnel. Foderingham was replaced by 18-year-old Leigh Bedwell. Di Canio did not hold back in condemning the actions of his goalkeeper, insisting that if he does not publicly apologise his time at the club could well be at an end. "He was one of the worst players I have ever seen," said Di Canio. "He's another player like the others, why can't we change the goalkeeper? Because the goalkeeper has a different coloured shirt? "I know Wes, he was the worst player against Stoke in the cup - he was far away the worst player, he made a rubbish performance. But I covered for him because we won 4-3. But what he did was not only the mistake, which can happen to anyone, but the arrogance when he started moaning to the other players - that was the worst thing for me. "A player that doesn't recognise his mistakes which were clear from miles away, he started moaning to his team-mates. Out there he behaved as the worst professional, arrogant, ignorant athlete I have ever seen. And if he doesn't come out and apologise to the fans, to the professionals in general, he is out from my team."
