Brescia hint at Cassano bid

President Gino Corioni has brought the likes of Roberto Baggio and Pep Guardiola to Brescia, so why not Antonio Cassano? “Never say never.”

A verdict from the tribunal into Sampdoria's bid to terminate Cassano's contract will arrive on Monday afternoon and he could effectively be a free agent.

The player has said he would like to join a club close to his home in Genoa, so the Rondinelle do technically fit the bill.

“Cassano? Never say never,” grinned Corioni on Sky Sport Italia television.

The President is well known for making outrageous signings, as Baggio and Guardiola both played for the club towards the end of their careers.

Today Brescia make their debut under new Coach Mario Beretta after Beppe Iachini was sacked.

“We hope to win, as Beretta has the abilities to take us to safety. This squad does have quality.

“Unfortunately for Iachini, when the victories just don't come then you have to do something to shake up the situation. Iachini remains a great guy.”
