VIDEO: Paolo defends Pardew in Di Canio celebration twist

Alan Pardew celebration

In a delightful twist on the Paolo Di Canio celebration during Sunderland’s 3-0 win at Newcastle United yesterday, Football Burp stumbled upon this video from three days ago: it’s Di Canio defending Alan Pardew’s exuberant celebration of Papiss Cisse’s last-gasp winner against Fulham.

First watch the Pardew celebration…

…and now the Di Canio interview…

Okay, the way the video bills itself may represent a bit of a grasp for an angle on the part of whomsoever titled it, but it’s nonetheless a prescient grasp.

And yes, it’s not really a ‘twist’ if it happened beforehand, but shut up.
