Cassano to make Sampdoria debut

New Sampdoria signing Antonio Cassano will make his first appearance in tomorrow's friendly against Swiss side Bellinzona.

"He will play for as long as he can," Samp coach Walter Mazzarri explained. "Obviously he won't be in a position to shine like his teammates, but I will be interested to see how far he has come in the last three weeks.

"He needs to recover his match fitness as physical condition is so crucial in football today. The communication is good between us and I have been able to listen to him and help him. If he behaves, he will learn."
