The World According To Antonio Cassano

What would you do if a referee does not make a call in your favor? Some would yell and curse at him, others would go crazy and get sent off.

Well Antonio Cassano I guess took it to the next level. The Sampdoria forward, after seeing that the referee did not make a call in their favor screamed and yelled- and left.

Yeah, in the 38th minute against Catania, the neurotic former Italian international walked off the pitch. The efforts of his teammates were to no avail as he kept walking in to the locker room.

This left Riccardo Garrone with no choice but to replace him. Sampdoria would lose that match 1-0. After the game, Garrone mentioned that the Cassano walked off “due to a muscular injury. Nothing else.”

It does seem as if his days at La Samp are over. Just another chapter in the crazy career of a crazy guy.

    Considering that I picked Cassano as the surprise player of Serie A this season, and just being a fan of his from his Roma and Azzurri days at Euro 2004 where he was the heart and soul of that squad, I’m very disappointed at the behavior. I don’t trust the guy anymore, his behavior at Real Madrid was inexcusable, and he’s got to grow up. He’s as talented as any Italian striker of his generation, and he’s gotten away with the ideal of his promise as a player for too long. I’ll repeat what Mancini told his own wayward forward Adriano just a few days ago, ” Like all the others he has to lead the life of an athlete and train every day.” In short, grow up.

    Some say it was Il Bambino’s frustrations with the refs, some with the injuries plaguing him this year. Only Cassano knows. But he really needs to relax and prove his worth on the pitch. I know Mazzari is fine, but an auto substitution? Antonio needs to follow the rules of the game.

    Where did you get your facts! The facts i got were that cassano got injured during the game cause someone kneed him in the back, and he couldn’t take it anymore so he walked out of the field. his teammate Montella was not awar that Cassano got injured and tried to make him continue play! Cassano got mad cause Montella Pulled him back, hurting his back!
