Antonio Cassano: Says that rumours of a Parma exit "annoyed" him

The 31-year-old only joined Parma in the summer and has featured 16 times so far for Roberto Donadoni's side in Serie A this season, netting six goals in the process.

Reports in Italy had suggested that a return to Sampdoria, where Cassano spent four years, could be on the cards, but the Italian was quick to dismiss the idea.

"These rumours annoyed me," he told a press conference.

"I have never spoken with Edoardo Garrone (Sampdoria president). I am happy at Parma and I want to remain at Parma.

"I have always said that one day I would like to come back to Sampdoria, but in Parma I am treated like a king. Here I feel really good."

Meanwhile, Parma's sporting director Pietro Leonardi also reiterated that Cassano would be staying put at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.

"Antonio remains. This is a definitive decision he already announced to me on Sunday," he said.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
