Capello backs Cassano for Italy return

The 27-year-old has been impressive for Sampdoria so far this season.

“When I see Cassano play, he reminds me of the player I had in Rome, but I don’t know what he does off the pitch,” Capello told Radio Anch’io Sport.

“I have always said that he is the biggest Italian talent and I hope that one day he will be included in the squad for the World Cup.”
