Sampdoria tell Cassano to forget pay-rise

Sampdoria have warned Antonio Cassano that an improved contract is out of the question.

Earlier this week, Cassano said he felt entitled to a new deal after inspiring Sampdoria to qualification for the Champions League.

However, Edoardo Garrone, the son of Sampdoria's President, believes that Cassano is more likely to get a pay cut than an increase.

"In the club's accounts, his cost, his salary, is very high," Garrone said.

"So renewing it means getting ourselves back round a table and negotiating the actual contractual terms."
