Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni has warned Antonio Cassano he's not guaranteed a start.

The striker was overlooked by Italy boss Prandelli last week.

“Dealing with Cassano means understanding how much of a contribution he can give and how he can make the difference, which is of course why he came to Inter.

“Antonio worked hard over the break, but I could well decide not to start him tomorrow evening. Squad rotation is about optimising results, as the two are connected. We have built a team that has valid alternatives in every area, but we have to take it one game at a time.

“Alvaro Pereira could also be on the bench, as he had a very long journey on international duty.”
