Parma management backing Cassano for Italy recall

Parma boss Roberto Donadoni says Antonio Cassano's form warrants an Italy recall.

Cassano left Inter Milan for Parma over the summer.

"Cassano has again wanted to demonstrate to everyone what kind of champion he is," Donadoni told Radio 24.

"A World Cup spot? All I can say is that it would be hard to not consider him for selection should he keep playing at his present level."

Parma President Tommaso Ghirardi added: "I think he does deserve selection when you look at how he is playing, but I don't think it's a technical issue…

"Prandelli knows him well and he'll know what decisions to make at the right time. So far, Cassano has been perfect off the pitch and is getting better on it game by game.

"I hope he continues like this."
