West Ham are a club in crisis on and off the pitch.
David Moyes' side have gone off the rails of late losing three games on the bounce and conceding 11 goals in the process.
The Hammers are in the thick of a relegation battle while fan unrest has come to a head with supporters invading the pitch to protest against the way the club has been run by co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady.
Saturday's scenes in the 3-0 home defeat to Burnley sent shockwaves through football which have also been felt over in Italy.
But Di Canio issued a swift and emphatic response.
"Like West Ham fans, I couldn't work even one day with a man like David Sullivan.
"I'm with the fans in this bad moment."
There is a bit of history between Di Canio and Sullivan after the unpopular owner publicly criticised the Italian when he stated his desire to one day manage the East Londoners.
Well now it seems the distrust is mutual.
