AC Milan fullback Massimo Oddo has welcomed the addition of former Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

Despite Cassano's off-field problems, Oddo believes the capture of the Italy international can only be a plus-point for the club.

"We're expecting a lot from him, he's a bonus to the team," explained Oddo.

"We hope that everything will go well.

"Milan offers a favourable environment because they give you everything but they demand respect.

"We'll also be keeping an eye on him."
