Ex-Parma striker Cassano admits "missing football"

Former Parma striker Antonio Cassano admits he's missing football.

Cassano left Parma in February.

"I feel ill without football," Cassano told Chi. "I miss it to death. I even said no to Bari's offer for family reasons.

"I miss the dressing room, training, messing around with my teammates from morning until night. I no longer feel the adrenaline, but it had to be that way. Now my family can live in peace, and that's the way it should be.

"Carolina and I have been married for five years and this is the first time that we've allowed ourselves some time alone with the kids.

"The first and last time though, because I miss [football] so much I could die. I still want to play, but in the future I'd like to be a technical director and manage relations between the club and the team.

"I'd be good at that, because I can spot a mistake immediately."
