Supreme Leader of North Korea and probably Paolo Di Canio’s biggest fan, Kim Jong-un, wants to buy Sunderland AFC and impose his will on the club.
Not really. But watch the Paddy Power video below for an idea of what that might be like.
Kim Jong Un has pledged his allegiance to Paolo Di Canio to help Sunderland avoid the drop. In a public statement Chairman Kim announced the Black Cats’ controversial plans to beat relegation and how he is going to ‘light up’ Sunderland.
The tiny North Korean leader took over from his old man Kim Jong-Il in December 2011 and has wasted no time becoming good pals with controversial Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio. A thumping 3-0 win over Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby gave Di Canio some brief respite from the accusations about his fascist beliefs, as the eccentric Italian tries to guide the North-East club to safety.
