Antonio Cassano happy at Sampdoria

Sampdoria forward Antonio Cassano has thanked the club and former sporting director Giuseppe Marotta for a life changing effect on his development.

Previously considered something of a loose cannon, Cassano has settled down in recent seasons, and the 28-year-old believes his game has improved as a result.

Speaking at Italy's Coverciano training ground, Cassano said: "Being in Genoa changed me. I am a lot happier and calmer in Genoa.

"At Samp I found a staff that was built around me by Marotta who helped me grow and I continue to do so even now that he has gone."

The former Real Madrid and AS Roma player added: "In my head football was a succession of tricks and touches. I thought about being the best of all-time and that I didn’t need to care about the team.

"Instead there was only one player who could win everything playing on his own: Diego Maradona.

"Anyway, I have learnt to think together with the team and I feel much stronger than before because I have another 10 people who play with me."
