‘Cassano? I’d drive him here!’

Reto Ziegler claims he would drive Antonio Cassano to Sion as the Sampdoria outcast is “perhaps the best player I’ve ever played with”.

Cassano has not played a single minute for Sampdoria this season, with President Massimo Ferrero repeatedly making clear the veteran forward does not have a future at Marassi.

“Cassano? I’d like him very much as a teammate. Indeed, I’d go directly to Genoa in a car and pick him up,” the left-back, who played alongside the former Italy international for the Blucerchiati between 2007 and 2010, told Secolo XIX.

“I don’t know his situation well and I won’t comment on it, but what’s certain is that Antonio is perhaps the best player I’ve ever played with.

“At Sion, there’s always room for someone like him.”
