Ex-AC Milan striker Cassano: Today's players bunch of nobodies. They all suck!

Former AC Milan striker Antonio Cassano has taken aim at today's footballer.

Cassano announced his retirement yesterday.

He spoke to Italian comedy show Le Iene and stated: “Football was so much better in 1999.

"All the players suck nowadays. They're a bunch of nobodies. Take Juventus away from Serie A and Gonzalo Higuain from Milan, now try to find me a champion in this division."

He also stated: “Francesco Totti is the best Italian player in history, along with Roberto Baggio and Paolo Maldini. The worst Coach I ever met was Stramaccioni. There were so many bad players, I couldn't list them all. Best not to, poor things.

“Juve are the strongest team in Italy and one of the best in Europe. However, I am really not suited to them. They'd kick me out after three days. First day signature, second day training, third day termination."
