Former Swindon Town chairman Jeremy Wray feels that the appointment of Paolo Di Canio by Sunderland is an excellent decision.

The Italian resigned as Swindon boss in February but now has been chosen as Martin O'Neill's successor at the Stadium of Light following the Ulsterman's sacking on Saturday.

Wray told BBC Sport: "I think it's a great appointment. He'll galvanise the team. If you're looking for a catalyst for change, he's the right man.

"It's where's he's always wanted to manage and it's a very astute appointment."

Sunderland are 16th in the Premier, just one point clear of the relegation zone.
