Antonio Cassano goes back to his battles with Fabio Capello, the Real Madrid bosses, and the inescapable return of Sampdoria. “I am the most noteworthy ability to toss all away.
“FantAntonio spoke to Sky Wear Italia approximately his turbulent life and the numerous missed chances. Cassano confessed that he has been the most prominent ability to have tossed everything away in later a long time since he truly did toss himself away.
“It’s one thing to alter, another to not need to prepare, offended everybody and begin contentions from morning till night. The ‘wild virtuoso who breaks the rules’ thing as it were goes so distant, and I truly did cross the line as well numerous times.
“Children modify you. In the event that I’d had my kids when I was 20, I’d have instructed them all the off-base lessons. I’ve progressed presently and it’s overall much obliged to my spouse. I’m so glad to have her by my side.”
Cassano was shot to notoriety at Bari, at that point bound with Francesco Totti at Roma until his ill-fated move to Genuine Madrid in January 2006. “The greatest lament isn’t making the foremost of the opportunity to play for the greatest club in history at the age of 23, with colleagues like Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo. I tossed absent a colossal chance at Genuine Madrid.
“I was viably supplanting Luis Figo and Michael Owen, so I was great, but I caused one catastrophe after another. Capello arrived at Real Madrid a while later. I’d lost 16kg in preparing, scored two goals in three games and he benched me for the fourth. I misplaced my intellect, and after you disregard Capello, he cuts you out. “He gave me another chance indeed after all that. He did so much for me, but I did valuable small for him in return.”
Cassano continued his unfortunate propensity to ruin good ties when he clashed with President Riccardo Garrone of Sampdoria.
“The best experience of my career was at Sampdoria. I used to be coming off 18 dark months at Real Madrid, but I rediscovered myself and did something extraordinary in Genoa.
“We finished fourth in Serie A and reached the Coppa Italia Final with what was frankly a mean squad. I also met my wife during that have which is why I will be able to forever remain in Genoa.”
There were plans for him to figure for Samp during a different capacity after his retirement, the 37-year-old said.
“I met with (Sampdoria President Massimo) Ferrero six months back, we took a few time to assess things. We talked and my thought was to be a director of sport. We’ll have to be seen in case he has changed his mind.” It’s a long way from what Cassano says he would have done without a career in football. “I scarcely went to school and was barely a mental, but I don’t think I would’ve fallen in with a terrible swarm, as that would’ve disturbed my mother as well much. I’d likely have finished up working in a butcher’s or a supermarket.”
