Zeman coached Cassano at Bari and took issue from his claims made this week.
Cassano had declared: "In 20 years (Francesco) Totti will be forgotten, (Diego) Maradona, (Lionel) Messi, (Johan) Cruyff will be remembered forever. There was the period of Bruno Conti, then of Totti and now there is (Lorenzo) Pellegrini, who will perhaps play for Roma for 20 years and he will win a Scudetto. Guys, let's change ".
In response, Zeman stated: "Cassano is wrong.
"Totti remains the symbol of Roma and was also seen last Sunday, when the they dedicated many songs. Will we remember Cassano in 20 years? Yes… maybe in Bari."
