Tats crazy – Sunderland fan inks Di Canio’s celebration in derby win
Sunderland’s derby win over Newcastle last season was highly emotional for everyone on Wearside, but one fan has taken it further than most.
Staring down the barrel of relegation, Paolo Di Canio was brought in to replace Martin O’Neill and not only did he steady the ship, he also steered the Mackems to a 3-0 win over their biggest rivals at St. James’ Park.
The images of Di Canio doing his best Jose Mourinho impression on the sideline were a common sight the following week and one supporter has decided to get a tattoo of that euphoric moment for all Sunderland fans.
The scoreline should of course read NUFC 0 – SAFC 3, and if you look at his trousers, it looks as if the Italian is very “happy” indeed, but these are just minor details.
And we have seen far worse ink jobs in the world of football, from this hatchet commemoration of Chelsea’s Champions League win to even this questionable tribute to Didier Drogba.
Football fans and their passion.
