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."
