Di Canio adds Mussolini inspired tattoo to his collection

Former player and coach Paolo Di Canio is no stranger to controversy and his latest tattoo has placed the 48 year Italian back under the spotlight after a recent appearance on Sky Sports Italia

Di Canio appeared in a short sleeved shirt and the words DVX (Dux in Latin) could be clearly seen tattooed on the former Lazio players biceps. Dux is a homage to Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini who used the title of dux/duce in Italian to represent his leadership and a famous fascist motto at the time was "DVX MEA LVX" (The leader is my light).

Former Sunderland coach Di Canio was sanctioned back in 2005 when playing at SS Lazio at the time for his "Roman salute" to the curva following his goal during the Roma derby at the Stadio Olimpico. Many Sunderland fans were also unhappy with the Italian 's announcement as first team coach in 2013 due to his heavy politicized 'baggage'.
