‘I will demand more from Cassano’

Roberto Donadoni has reflected on the expectation and the role of responsibility that he will place on Antonio Cassano at Parma.

The Gialloblu last week completed a deal to bring the playmaker to the Ennio Tardini and his new Coach has warned him of what he must bring to the seventh club of his career.

“Cassano knows that he will be relied upon as a player who has great respect and who is held in high regard,” explained Donadoni today.

“Otherwise, he would not have come to Parma. He will, however, face a very demanding Coach - he is a player of absolute value, so I will expect more from him than others.

“He is 31 and, with his maturity, he must try to smooth and improve the aspects that, over time, have penalised him.”
