Ex-Real Madrid striker Cassano: I called Capello a s*** man

Former Real Madrid striker Antonio Cassano has recalled one bust-up he had with Fabio Capello.

The two Italians never saw eye-to-eye while together in Madrid.

Cassano said, "In Tarragona he had me warming up all the second half with Ronaldo.

"In the locker room I told him: 'You are a s*** man, you are more false than Monopoly money!"

Cassano also remarked: "What I regret the most in my career is leaving Real Madrid. I was in the best team in history and I could have stayed longer and won much more. I followed my instinct, made mistakes and left."
