Cassano happy to find wild men Gattuso, Ibra at AC Milan

Antonio Cassano says he's found some like-minded characters in the AC Milan locker room.

Cassano has always made his childhood in the slums of Bari part of his character and feels strange so far up north.

"Gennaro Gattuso speaks Milanese now, he's been here so long, therefore I am clearly more of a terrone (southerner) than he is," grinned FantAntonio in GQ Italia.

"Ibra is wild, like me. Maybe he's got a grandfather from Bari Vecchia... Alexandre Pato is scarily talented, as there isn't anyone that good at that age.

"I am super happy to have come to Milan and we've got to win the Scudetto, but it's tough for me to live here. I need to get used to it. My mother and my cousin Nicola gave up after three days of fog and went back to my old house by the sea."
