Cassano: ‘Inter will win the Scudetto’

Antonio Cassano predicts Inter will win the Scudetto, and discusses his decision to leave Verona.

The forward joined the Butei on a free transfer this summer, but walked away without playing a single game, and it’s still unclear whether or not he’s retired.

“There was no spark there,” Cassano explained to Tiki Taka.

“It’s like when you’re seeing a woman and she no longer attracts you, so you leave. I took a big risk 12 years ago leaving Real Madrid for Sampdoria.

“I didn’t feel like making a similar choice this time. I knew this would be a season of suffering for Verona, but I didn’t know if I could give 100 per cent to avoid relegation.

“I gave up a lot of money, which not everyone would do. I left things on good terms with them, we have a good rapport.”

Cassano also discussed some other Serie A topics, including Juventus Coach Max Allegri, Paulo Dybala and his former club, Inter.

“Allegri is a superstar on the bench. He wakes up in the morning, he invents something and it goes well. He can Coach the top teams because he understands things well as a superstar.

“Dybala? He won’t be like Messi. Messi is the best player in history and only Cristiano [Ronaldo] gets close to him. You can’t compare something unreachable with a great player.

“This isn’t to take anything away from Dybala, he’s very similar to [Vincenzo] Montella. He’s strong, he’s intelligent and he scores so many goals, but Messi is something else.

“The Scudetto? Inter will win it. [Luciano] Spalletti is a great Coach.”
