Swindon Town manager Paolo di Canio feels that he is ready to manage in the Premier League.

Former West Ham United frontman Paolo di Canio has said that he thinks he is now ready to manage in the Premier League.

The 44-year-old is currently in charge of Swindon Town in League One. He led the club to promotion last season and they are now just outside the playoff places in the third tier.

Penning an article for BBC Sport, Di Canio said: "For me, even before I became manager of Swindon, I felt I was ready, but that was my arrogant opinion. Now I have proven it.

"Some managers get their chance in the Premier League straight away, without having succeeded in the lower leagues.

"I am not jealous, they deserve to be there, but I don't know many managers who have a 61% win record from 75 games."

The Robins host Macclesfield in the FA Cup this afternoon.
