di Canio: I didn't say it!
It can't be easy being Paolo di Canio. Because it seems that most of the time you are being 'quoted' in the papers, the truth is you being 'misquoted'.

One time after this happened, he said he would never talk to the press again, and only say things through his official site on icons, or the West Ham United press office.

Here he is using the West Ham press office to let his fans know that in fact he has been misquoted. He has not denied talking to the press, but has instead just said he has been misquoted.

"I have not asked for a transfer, I have been misquoted," he told the official site earlier today.

"And as far as Glenn is concerned, I think he will prove himself to be one of the best managers in the Premiership - we can already see what quality he has brought to the club."

Glenn also says that the press is making a mountain out of a molehill, and that Paolo is in the team on Saturday, and is still very much in his plans for the future of West Ham.

"Paolo is in the team on Saturday after two good performances over Easter. He has a year to run on his contract and he is very much part of our plans, an important member of the side.

"I made the decision to change things at Fulham and I don't see any reason to justify that after we won the game."
