“THE SHIRT OF MY DREAMS.”
“I have always supported Inter. I want to do well here already starting this Sunday.”
Cassano chooses the number 99, jokes with Nagatomo, Moratti arrives to greet him.
He is on the UEFA list: will be there in the return leg against Vaslui.
Appiano Gentile – Antonio Cassano was not born in Ehime Prefecture and did not study in Tokyo. But yesterday morning he already seemed to be the best friend of Yuto Nagatomo. In his first training session as an Inter player, he made several jokes with the Japanese. It lasted around five to ten minutes but it was enough for Cassano to change the atmosphere of the team. Yesterday, he arrived at Appiano Gentile very early with a t-shirt of Cartman, a character on the cartoon series South Park. Completed his medical and went on the field with his new teammates in the gray training shirt. During a warm-up session, Antonio looked for Sneijder, embraced him and then went back in line to do some exercises. The game on Sunday at Pescara is not far away and Cassano wants to be ready. His physical condition seems to be in the good as well as his smiles. Then the moment between Cassano and Nagatomo arrived. “Go Yuto, pass the ball…” And again: “Yuto, I asked you a question and you did not understand.” Laughing as if they both have already known each other.
Vale Rossi and Matrix Three hours later, Cassano answered a few questions in an interview with Inter Channel and confirmed that his morale is high. “Finally, after an eternity, I have arrived at the club that I’ve always supported. To me, this is very important because this means that I have reached the top. My smiles are now back and I want to do well already in Pescara.” A few young fans at Appiano unanimously said: “This exchange is a great deal, he is better than Pazzini.” More famous Inter fans also charmed in the discussion. Valentino Rossi discussed his thoughts via Twitter: “I am very happy to see Cassano in black and blue.” A sentence written in response to a comment by Materazzi: “Welcome to Inter, my friend.” Matrix used the number 23 shirt to honor Michael Jordan, Cassano, instead, will have his beloved 99: “I have an emotional attachment to this number. I said to technical director Branca and sporting director Ausilio that if possible I’d like take it.”
The visit of Moratti When the team arrived at the airport, Cassano remained in Milan and this morning he will have a specialized training program to be ready for the game against Pescara on Sunday. On that day, Inter will not have the suspended Palacio and it is believed that Cassano will play at least 30 minutes in the first matchday of the new season. Inter have also added Cassano on the UEFA list instead of Samir Handanovic. It means that Cassano will debut at the San Siro on August 30 in the Europa League second leg against Vaslui. Yesterday, Massimo Moratti found the time to go to Appiano at 12:30 to have lunch with the team and the new signings: a welcome to Gargano and especially Cassano because he remains a special player not only in Italy. The official presentation will almost certainly be on Saturday at Appiano but a foreign bookmaker has already come up with a bet on him. Question: Who will score more this season between Cassano and Sneijder? In Italy, it is forbidden to bet but it can be done abroad. Perhaps Wes and Antonio will talk about it since they are neighbors. Both entering their building in which they live, Cassano will probably pretend to be angry: for that bookmaker, the favorite is Sneijder.
