You’ll never win anything with kids… unless you’re playing Sunderland’s first team

by Paddy Power Admin | September 9, 2013

It was supposed to end in a morale-boosting win for a team suffering a crisis of confidence.

Paolo di Canio organised a behind-closed-doors game for his Sunderland first team against the club’s Under-21 kids, who usually play in the Premier League’s Professional Development League.

The result? Kids 3, Sunderland 1.

The Mirror reports that mortified Di Canio told the players not to mention the game had even happened.

(Monday’s Ball of Shame gong for Things That Rhyme With ‘Pacifist’ goes to you, Paolo).

Sunderland lie 19th in the Premier League after three games, with no wins and five goals against. They’re 21/10 to go down with Paddy Power. Eek.
