“The great chance in the match for Milan involved Suso, who had to tee up Leao,” the ex-Italy forward told Tiki Taka.

Roma President James Pallotta and consultant Franco Baldini have felt the wrath of the club’s supporters over the past week, and Cassano agreed both were to blame for the botched nature of De Rossi’s departure.

Inter old boy Antonio Cassano expects Lautaro Martinez to replace Mauro Icardi, who ‘offers nothing if he doesn’t score’, once he returns from injury.

Martinez replaced Icardi as Inter’s lone striker while the No 9 was in exile, but a hamstring injury to the 21-year-old has let their former captain back in.

The club and player appear to have resolved their issues for now, yet Cassano believes the Argentine’s return will prove to be shortlived.
