  • "Oh Paolo why did you leave? Us Town fans idolised you and you were so near to getting back to back promotions in the first 2 years of your managerial career! You would of been an absolute Swindon legend, we know all about Ritchie being sold behind your back but this would have made promotion even more remarkable!? But you left us and broke thousands of hearts and also lost the opportunity of achieving the impossible...you will probably look back on this with deep regret and sadness for the rest of your life, you made a bad decision, left unfinished business and punished the fans who gave you their undivided love and loyalty!"

PAOLO Di Canio snuck into the County Ground in the dead of night to retrieve mementos of his time at Swindon Town, the Advertiser understands.

The Italian, who left the club on Monday, still had a set of keys to get into the stadium and is believed to have been caught on CCTV returning to his office at around 1am on Thursday.

The Adver has learnt that Di Canio removed pictures from the walls of his office which documented his success at the club.

While Di Canio formally confirmed his resignation on Monday, in a statement released to the Advertiser he revealed that it has not been officially accepted by the Swindon board.

He said: “The club have still not responded to my letter of resignation of 12th February.”

Di Canio’s representatives were not available for comment on Thursday night.
