Cassano has plates removed

Antonio Cassano will have an extended Christmas break after having plates removed in his hand on Wednesday.

The veteran striker went under the knife in May to have plates and pins inserted into his hand and wrist.

And this afternoon the Crociati man went back into hospital to have those removed in a routine procedure.

The forward is said to be doing well, but will take an extra long rest over the festive period, before returning in January.
