Parma striker Cassano admits few friends in game

Parma striker Antonio Cassano admits he has few friends in the game.

Cassano was asked who his true friends are in football.

"The truth? I have three great friends. Three, full stop. Two from Bari and another is a guy from Naples who lives in Rome.

"Football allows you to meet so many people. It allows you to live many adventures together. There are teammates with whom you do a lot. And they give you a lot.

"The relationship remains, but contact is then reduced. Once you leave the team, you live certain emotions less. And then maybe we lose sight of each other. Football is like that.

"A hug is important, friendship counts at that moment. Then sometimes much compassion remains. But the great friendships of a lifetime are those that do not have the colour of football shirts."
