Sampdoria coach Gigi del Neri says Antonio Cassano can expect to be left on the sidelines again next week.

After their 0-0 draw with Inter Milan, Giampaolo Pazzini and Nicola Pozzi will both be suspended for next week's game, so will Antonio Cassano be welcomed back into the fold?

"Cassano is still not in good shape. He has been out for a month, but we have other options," said Del Neri.
