Sunderland dignity pleases Di Canio

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio says his side delivered a performance that had "dignity, desire and ambition", despite losing 1-0 at Tottenham.

Gareth Bale's last-minute strike gave Spurs victory, but the win was not enough for Andre Villas-Boas's side to claim a top-four Premier League finish, due to Arsenal's 1-0 victory at Newcastle.

Di Canio said he will sit down with chairman Ellis Short to discuss the future of the playing squad he inherited from Martin O'Neill, after Sunderland finished the season in 17th place, just above the relegation zone.
