Cassano 'passes Inter medical'

Antonio Cassano passed his Inter medical, announced the doctor who performed it. “His heart is fine.”

The player had risked his life when he suffered an ischemic stroke on October 29, 2011, then underwent surgery to correct a congenital heart defect that had caused it.

“There are no problems compared to what was seen when he was at Milan,” Doctor Benazzo told Sky Sport Italia at the San Matteo di Pavia hospital.

“His heart is fine.”

The striker is ready to complete a transfer to Inter in exchange for Giampaolo Pazzini and €7m cash.

Cassano returned to football on April 7 and was able to take part in Italy’s Euro 2012 campaign.
