Cassano considers retirement

Antonio Cassano has said he’ll retire aged 34 if no interesting proposals come in for the Sampdoria outcast.

He has not played all season, as Samp froze him out of the squad and even removed his picture from the club website after he refused a transfer.

The former Bari, Roma, Real Madrid, Milan and Inter star confirmed this week he has asked to terminate the contract that ties him to the Blucerchiati until the end of the season.

“He told me that, without valid offers, he will just end it here, without even playing a farewell match,” said Sampdoria Coach Marco Giampaolo in a Press conference.

The only proposal so far seems to be from Serie B side Virtus Entella and he has no intention of going abroad, as he has a young family and wants to be close to them.

One of the most naturally gifted players in the history of Italian football, by his own admission it has been a wasted career.
