Sampdoria defender Gastaldello hopes fans do not jeer Inter Milan's Cassano

Sampdoria defender Daniele Gastaldello hopes fans do not boo Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano upon his return this week.

The vice-captain has insisted that he remembers Cassano fondly.

"Antonio gave so much to Sampdoria," he told Sky Sport Italia. "Even if he did make a few mistakes.

"The most beautiful memory was when we qualified for the Champions League having reached fourth place.

"That will be a lasting memory for everyone.

"The worst memory though was when he argued with the President.

"If he's booed [by the home fans] then it is out of fear because he is such a strong player."
