Does West Ham’s Paolo Di Canio lounge ban fascists?
THE debate over self-declared fascist Paolo Di Canio’s appointment as Sunderland FC’s boss has subsided. If things don’t work out for the Italian at the Mackems, it’s unlikely he will be West Ham United’s new manager.
Karren Brady, vice-chairman of West Ham United, uses her Sun column to explain her club’s view on Di Canio:
“Many times since we took over the club Paolo has approached owners David Sullivan and David Gold about being the manager of West Ham. I think they considered him briefly – something I never did – but dismissed him on the basis that football and fascism do not mix.”
West Ham United fans can ponder what might have been in the The Paolo Di Canio Lounge at West Ham United’s Boleyn Ground.
This relaxed and contemporary exclusive lounge offers full bar access in an informal setting that pays homage to the passionate Italian’s great achievements. The suite offers a welcoming, friendly family area.
Visitors should take care when raising an arm to point out the signage and drinks.
