Cassano made the claim after signing for Parma last week.
â€śWalter Mazzarri wanted to set the record straight following statements made by Antonio Cassano during his Press conference at Parma this afternoon,â€ť read a statement on the official Inter website.
â€śWhat I said to the club is exactly what I said when I held my press conference in Appiano Gentile. I havenâ€™t spoken to or about the players since then because I was waiting for the start of the season.
â€śI donâ€™t see how I can have decided who my first-choice players and squad players are before Iâ€™ve even had the chance to coach them.
â€śIâ€™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.â€ť
