LONDON -- Paolo Di Canios turbulent and divisive Sunderland reign was abruptly ended after less than six months on Sunday as he became the first manager to be fired this Premier League season. De Aaron Fox NBA Jersey . Sunderland announced it had "parted company" with the Italian a day after a 3-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion left the northeast club bottom of the standings and without a win from five games this season. The firing comes amid reports of player unrest after Di Canio said his "players need to release the rubbish from their brains," and brings an end an uneasy chapter in the clubs 134-year-old history. "The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paolo and his staff and wishes them well for the future," Sunderland said in a short statement, 175 days after hiring Di Canio. Di Canios appointment in March provoked a widespread backlash, with anger within and outside the club after American owner Ellis Short brought in a manager who had made well-publicized statements in the past expressing fascist leanings. Despite achieving the initial objective of avoiding relegation last season, the single point Sunderland had collected from five games this season means he is out of a job after just 13 games in charge. "It was perhaps (the club) felt that the players were finding it hard to conform to his unique style ... and by the looks of things the players werent buying into it," former Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn told Sky Sports television. "Theyve made a very brave decision to appoint him, they got what they wanted out of him, and now theyve made a brave decision (for him) to go. It wouldnt have been my style." Kevin Ball, a former Sunderland captain, has been put in temporary charge, with a League Cup game against Peterborough on Tuesday. Di Canio was only hired at the end of March, with the maverick replacing Martin ONeill when the team was nose-diving toward the League Championship. Critics not only questioned his lack of coaching experience -- just 21 months at lower-league Swindon -- but also his past statements that expressed fascist sympathies. On the evening he was appointed on March 31, former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband resigned from his positions as vice chairman and non-executive director of the club in protest. Following an outcry during a stormy few first days in charge, Di Canio eventually renounced his links to fascism but refused to be questioned on the matter. The row faded as he masterminded the three wins that preserved Sunderlands Premier League status, including a striking derby success at Newcastle. Given the resources to strengthen in the summer transfer window, Di Canio brought in 14 new players. But the decision to sign just one Englishman provoked the ire of the Football Association, whose chairman Greg Dyke held up the club as a reason for the inability for homegrown talent to gain opportunities in the countrys topflight. And the new first-team recruits failed to gel on the pitch -- with the only win this season coming in the League Cup against third-tier side MK Dons. Di Canios only managerial experience until landing the Sunderland job had been in League One. And his outspoken approach at Swindon had already angered many while flagging up the potential pitfalls of putting him in the dugout. Already this season, Di Canio had been fined 8,000 pounds ($12,800) by the FA after accepting a charge of misconduct for an outburst at a referee that saw him sent off. After a colorful playing career in the top divisions of Italy, England and Celtic, Di Canios downfall was not unexpected. Although he scored sublime goals, there were also headline-grabbing antics, notably when he pushed a referee to the ground after being sent off while playing for Sheffield Wednesday in 1998. He scored more than 100 goals in over 500 appearances as a player with Lazio, Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan, Celtic and West Ham among other clubs before retiring in 2008. Now his next steps in football remain uncertain -- particularly in England -- while Sunderland searches for its sixth permanent manager in less than five years. Possible candidates for the job are former Chelsea and West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo, and Gus Poyet, who left Brighton earlier this year. De Aaron Fox NCAA Jersey ... as usual. Even with the salary cap being set lower than many general managers expected and hoped for at $69 million and whats considered a shallow pool of top-end players available, this unrestricted-free-agent period figures to follow the familiar script of teams bidding up prices to keep up with each other.

The two sides appeared destined to split the points, but Busquets struck with virtually the final kick of the ball to help Barcelona keep pace with Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga table. Barcelona nearly grabbed the lead when Luis Suarez hung off the shoulder of the last defender before steering home a cross in the 70th minute, but the Uruguayan was ruled to be in an offside position at the time of the delivery. Valencia marched down the pitch and tested Claudio Bravo as Sofiane Feghouli saw his attempt from the right side of the box denied by the Barcelona keeper. Bravo came up big once again when Alvaro Negredo lashed a cross from Jose Gaya toward goal, but the Chilean parried the attempt just outside the post. They proved to be two crucial saves as the Catalans ultimately stole all three points thanks to Busquets heroics. Lionel Messi served an inch-perfect cross to the back post to find Neymar, who sent a powerful header on goal. Diego Alves made a sprawling stop to deny the Brazilian, but Busquets was lurking to slam home the rebound in the third minute of the stoppage time. The victory sees Barcelona improve to 31 points to stay two points back of Real Madrid. Valencia ddrops to fifth place, staying put on 24 points. De Aaron Fox Youth Jersey. Atletico Madrid kept pace with Real Madrid and Barcelona at the top of the table by collecting a 2-0 victory over Deportivo at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday. The hosts nearly took an early lead only to see Kokes header come back off the post, but the breakthrough would come three minutes before halftime when Saul Niguez got on the end of Mario Mandzukics flick and nodded the ball into the back of the net from extremely close range. The win was clinched in the 55th minute when Arda Turan lashed a volley toward goal and ultimately found the back of the net with Modibo Diakites ill- advised attempt at a clearance taking the shot past Fabricio. The result sees Atletico improve to 29 points on the season to stay four points back of Real. A late surge saw Sevilla cruise to a 5-1 victory over Granada on Sunday. Carlos Bacca and Youssef El Arabi exchanged first-half goals, but Sevilla netted four times in the final 25 minutes to claim all three points in resounding fashion. Ever Banega provided the go-ahead goal in the 65th minute before Bacca completed his brace in the 79th. The rout was finished thanks to Stephane MBias strike in the 89th and Kevin Gameiros tally one minute later. Rounding out Sundays La Liga slate, Villarreal scored in either half to earn a 2-0 victory at Cordoba.
