Cassano: ‘I’m ready to return’

Antonio Cassano reiterates his desire to return to football - “I want to find a Coach and club that trusts me”.

The 36-year-old hasn’t played for two seasons, having been frozen out at Sampdoria and then walked away from Verona in pre-season last year.

“I have a huge desire to play football,” Cassano told Sky.

“Physically I’m great, I’m 82kg and I’ve never weighed that in my life. I’d like to play about two hours away from my house!

“I’m very enthusiastic, but I want to find a Coach and a club that trusts me. I’m convinced I can still make a difference, because I can make a difference.

“Last year I said things as they were, I left [Verona] because I didn’t feel the spark.”
