AS Monaco shot stopper Vito Mannonebecame a cult hero amongst the Sunderland fans at the Stadium of Light following his transfer from Arsenal. Last week Saturday made it eight years since Vito Mannone moved to Sunderland from Arsenal.

The Italian goalkeeper was the proper success story as the Black Cats’ strategy to sign players from all over the world to boost Di Canio in the bid to establish the club in the top flight failed woefully. Di Canio spent several months in the job before he was shown the way out for poor result.
