Pazzini and Cassano visit Samp?

There are reports that Giampaolo Pazzini and Antonio Cassano will be in the stands cheering on Sampdoria tomorrow.

The two strikers both left the club in January after rows with President Riccardo Garrone.

As they are available – Cassano suspended for Milan's game with Fiorentina, Pazzini having already played for Inter today – it's rumoured they'll be at Marassi.

On Sunday afternoon Sampdoria welcome Lecce in a relegation dogfight, so the players could be cheering them on from the touchline.

Samp have plummeted down the standings in recent months and are only two points clear of the drop zone.

Although they left the club in fairly bitter circumstances, it's claimed Pazzini and Cassano kept in touch with their former teammates, sending reassuring text messages during this difficult time.
