Christian Abbiati has urged Antonio Cassano to drop thoughts of leaving AC Milan. Although his agent and Vice-President Adriano Galliani have both firmly denied reports of a move away, the media continue to suggest Cassano will leave to seek first-team football.

"It seems to me that in these months at Milan Cassano has started many games and come on for the second half in others," goalkeeper Abbiati told the Corriere dello Sport.

"My advice? He needs to concentrate and find new motivation."
