Cassano future put on hold again

The future of Antonio Cassano has been put on hold again with the verdict regarding his dispute with Sampdoria likely to come on Wednesday or Friday at the latest.

Sampdoria President Riccardo Garrone has asked that Cassano's contract be rescinded after a falling out in late October.

The 28-year-old Italy international hasn't played since and his career at Sampdoria is over regardless of the arbitration hearing's decision.

The first hearing was held on Friday when a number of key witnesses were heard.

The lawyer in charge of the proceedings Paolo Giuggioli promised a decision for today, but the verdict has been postponed again.

"We couldn't decide today," he said. "Today we heard what the defendants had to say.

"We'll have the sentence within a couple of days. We'll know everything by December 16," he concluded.
