Dirty Tackle

Paolo Di Canio kicks his players, cuts the grass and continues winning

Dirty Tackle

Paolo Di Canio congratulates James Collins on his goal.

League One side Swindon Town pulled off an extra-time upset at Stoke in the second round of the Capital One Cup (formerly the Carling Cup). Manager Paolo "I do what I want" Di Canio led Town with his signature intensity and spurred James Collins to a hat trick by celebrating his goals with a kick up the backside.

Collins finished his hat trick with the match's third extra-time goal to give Town a 4-3 win and he probably did it because he knew the kicking from Di Canio he would get if they lost would be far worse than the one he got after scoring earlier in the match. Here's video...
