SWINDON manager Paolo Di Canio was involved in a heated confrontation with striker Leon Clarke following Tuesday’s night’s Carling Cup defeat by Southampton.

The rather hot-headed Italian could be seen man-handling Clarke towards the tunnel before they apparently got into a pushing and shoving match.

Clarke refused to go into the dressing room and left the ground still wearing his kit while Di Canio went home without attending his usual post-match press conference.

Chairman Jeremy Wray later said: “Clearly there was an incident and it would be wrong to apportion blame until we have all the facts.”
