Cassano out of Aston Villa-Parma

Antonio Cassano will miss Parma’s friendly trip to Aston Villa tomorrow due to a knee injury.

FantAntonio did not even travel with the rest of the squad to Birmingham, so only 19 players are flying in.

Cassano has been training separately from his teammates for three days, as he is suffering from a left knee problem.

Also missing out are the likes of Nicola Pozzi, Daniele Galloppa, Fabiano Santacroce and Gianluca Musacci.

Promising Parma youngster Alberto Cerri is out because he’ll be involved in an Italy Under-19 match.
