Real Madrid didn't appreciate Antonio Cassano's revelations this week that he enjoyed the dating life in Madrid more than the football.

Now at Sampdoria, Cassano is seeking a permanent deal in Genoa and Real sports director Pedja Mijatovic said: "I have not liked what he said. For a player who plays for a club that is the most important in the world it is not very intelligent to say such things.

"His future? We'll see what happens between now and June, he is now playing very well at Sampdoria, we are happy for him and he is happy."
