“I have a Culture, I don’t stop my Culture” Di Canio

“I have a Culture, I don’t stop my Culture” Di Canio

Swindon Manager Paoloa Di Canio was sent to the stands during their match against Macclesfield on January 21st 2012.

His post-match reaction was typically Di Canio. Interestingly though he was very passionate about his right to express his culture. His use of body language and gestures were interpreted as being somewhat overzealous by match officials. However, Di Canio clearly feels that he can’t help but express his Italian culture, of which a large part is to be expressive vocally and physically.

What do you think? Does it matter that he is now working in another culture? Should we accept that sometimes managers [and players] come from different countries and can therefore act differently? Or, as professionals in the UK should they respect local customs and culture?
