Sampdoria defender Daniele Gastaldello has reflected on his memories of Antonio Cassano, as the Inter man prepares for a return to the Marassi.
The Bluerchiati host Andrea Stramaccioni's team on Wednesday, with the striker set to play against his old club.
And the vice-captain has insisted that he remembers Cassano fondly.
“Antonio gave so much to Sampdoria,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “Even if he did make a few mistakes.
“The most beautiful memory was when we qualified for the Champions League having reached fourth place.
“That will be a lasting memory for everyone.
“The worst memory though was when he argued with the President.
“If he's booed [by the home fans] then it is out of fear because he is such a strong player.”
