Cassano signed for Hellas Verona earlier this season before pulling out of the deal. However, he insists he's ready to resume his playing career.
"When I'll be back? I do not know, but I definitely want to continue," he told Sky Italia. "In a month I lost 5 kilos, I'm fine and I want to keep playing, not for the money, I've never done it in my entire career, I want to return for personal pride, because I want to beat my challenge, I want to show everyone that I can still make the difference.
"I also play 3-4 times a week tennis and I train every afternoon, I want to keep fit because if I had to start pre-season training I want to start big and go to a thousand."
