Antonio Cassano retires
Former Italy international Antonio Cassano has announced his retirement after training for less than a week with Virtus Entella.
Cassano says in a statement: “The day has come where you decide that it’s really over. I have other priorities now.”
Entella, based near Cassano’s current home in Genoa, announced a week ago that Cassano would begin training with the club “without any contractual obligation.”
The 36-year-old Cassano last played for Sampdoria in May 2016. He signed with Hellas Verona before last season but left the club after two weeks, saying he missed his family.
