It has been almost a year since Paolo di Canio’s first game for the Giallorossi, and the first half of his first season at the helm was anything but an auspicious start.
A 1-0 loss to Roma at Stadio Olimpico, the hosts having just secured a place in the Champions League quarter-finals, saw the team fall out of the Champions league places and ultimately drop out of Europe.
The team’s coach was replaced by former Chelsea and Italy international Paolo Scarponi and his side lost their only other competitive match of the campaign.
Now, Di Canios’ side are just a point behind the Serie A leaders Roma in third place with nine games remaining.
But despite the results, Di Cottio said that he had no regrets over his first few months in charge.
“I was happy with what I did, I had a good season,” Di Canionso said, “but I didn’t feel happy, I was not happy with my first season.”
Di Canios is still very much the man to watch in Serie A, and it’s unlikely that he’ll be leaving for another job anytime soon.
“I am a great coach and a great person, I have no regrets,” Di Cotti said.
