Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola says Sampdoria bad-boy Antonio Cassano would succeed in the Premier League.

Cassano has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester City since falling out with Samp president Riccardo Garrone.

"His future depends on himself, whether it's good or bad," Zola told Corriere dello Sport.

"Like everyone, he can determine what happens. If he manages his qualities and personality well, then he will have no problem.

"Cassano in the Premier League? He can play anywhere, it doesn't depend on him." ?
