Mazzarri denies pushing Cassano out of Inter Milan

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri denies pushing Antonio Cassano out of the club.

Cassano made the claim after signing for Parma last week.

"Walter Mazzarri wanted to set the record straight following statements made by Antonio Cassano during his Press conference at Parma this afternoon," read a statement on the official Inter website.

"What I said to the club is exactly what I said when I held my press conference in Appiano Gentile. I haven't spoken to or about the players since then because I was waiting for the start of the season.

"I don't see how I can have decided who my first-choice players and squad players are before I've even had the chance to coach them.

"I'd like to put on record that the last time I spoke to Cassano was at the Inter v Napoli match in the first half of last season. On that occasion I just said hello to him on the pitch."
