Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio claims that his club's players are not afraid of him.

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has insisted that it is not possible for his squad to be afraid of him.

The 45-year-old revealed last season that he had fined seven members of his squad for "unacceptable behaviour".

"The dressing room is like a family. There are some quarrels, but when children lose the way from the road I put them back," he told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"Players cannot be afraid of the coach, it's not possible. I am not one that kills people, I only train them."

Di Canio replaced Martin O'Neill as manager of the North East side in March.
