Di Canio offers olive branch to Foderingham
Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio has held clear-the-air talks with Wes Foderingham, less than 24 hours after publicly criticising the young goalkeeper.
Di Canio blamed Foderingham for Preston's opening goal during Sunday's 4-1 npower League One defeat, and after the 21-year-old reacted angrily to being substituted, Di Canio called him "arrogant" and "ignorant" and demanded that he openly apologise or be dropped. Now it appears Foderingham has said sorry to Di Canio, who is now looking ahead to Swindon's next fixture against local rivals Oxford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round on Wednesday night. And the Italian confirmed via a statement on the club's official website, swindontownfc.co.uk, that Foderingham will be available for selection at the Kassam Stadium. "Wes has apologised. The situation is now clear and we will move on and work together," said Di Canio. "He is a genuine guy and a strong character. "The rules are there and he will pay his price for his actions. He has been fantastic for us last and this season, but he didn't behave well on Sunday. He will have his chance to be a part of the team and be available for selection against Oxford on Wednesday night."
