Di Canio: Sessegnon did not care about Sunderland

Paolo Di Canio has slated Stephane Sessegnon’s attitude as he prepares to potentially face the former Sunderland midfielder this weekend.

Sessegnon is in line to make his West Brom debut against Sunderland on Saturday having received his work permit on Wednesday following his deadline-day move away from the Stadium of Light.

And Sunderland manager Di Canio has been critical of the 29-year-old ahead of the game, stating he has no regrets around the player’s departure and questioned Sessegnon’s commitment at the end of his two-year spell with the club.

“It is clear that we didn’t push him out because 10 days, two weeks before (deadline day) I said I would keep him,” the manager confirmed.

“But to be honest, once we spoke and I said ‘I want to keep you’ then I had a player whose performances were not good in front of everybody.

“He had a very good pre-season and in the first two games you can play badly, but the body language was not of a player who wants to give his best and then we had a crucial match.

“It was the cup, in the moment of the season when we hadn’t won a game yet and everybody was at the stadium. After quarter of an hour, at the same time that we conceded a goal, my player was out somewhere and was found.

“It means you don’t care. It means you don’t care about the club so your time is gone. It was the opportunity to say for everybody, and especially for him, OK, time to go.

“For this reason he left, not because he is a bad guy because he tried to give his best, but in my opinion, his time was finished at Sunderland because he was not capable anymore to give his best.”
