Sunderland endured a difficult start to 2012–13 season, with their first victory not coming until late Sept, against Wigan. With the threat of relegation looming, O'Neill was sacked on 30 March and Italian Paolo Di Canio was announced as O'Neill's replacement the following day. The appointment prompted the immediate resignation of club Vice Chairman David Miliband due to Di Canio's "past political statements". T
he appointment of Di Canio also sparked opposition from the Durham Miners' Association, which threatened to remove one of its mining banners from Sunderland's Stadium of Light, which is built on the former site of the Wearmouth Colliery. The threat by the Durham Miners' Association was removed after meeting with the management of the club.
After a 2–1 loss at Chelsea, Di Canio's second match in charge saw Sunderland beat Newcastle 3–0 at St James' Park in the Tyne Wear Derby and their first win at St James Park since Nov 2000. Sunderland went on to survive relegation with one game to go. Over the summer, the club appointed Italian former agent Roberto De Fanti as the club's first director of football.
