Parma signing Cassano: Mazzarri wanted me out of Inter Milan

Parma signing Antonio Cassano has hit out at new Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri. Cassano claims he was "pushed out" of Inter by Mazzarri.

"I thank [President Massimo] Moratti, [sporting director Marco] Branca and [director Piero]Ausilio, but not [new Coach Walter] Mazzarri, because before he signed he told me that I was a fixed starter with the team and then after he arrived he said I was a starter, but one that should go home," said Cassano.

"He pushed me to go away. I want away because I could not return to Inter in his plans.

"Everyone must be aware that when you have Antonio, it is for better or worse. Throughout my career I have achieved 30-40 per cent of what I was capable of."
