Genoa – What Antonio Cassano and Beppe Marotta did not love each other was well known since the days of Samp di Garrone. Arrowheads, quarrels, misunderstandings, offenses. In the common Sampdoria past there was everything and the wound never healed. Now a new chapter of the battle, from a distance. It all stems from the criticism of the Bari talent of Nicolò Barella a few days ago, current Inter midfielder. “A good player, but he does not excite me, he is not a champion”, the sentence of Fantantonio.
A clear and blunt sentence, in the manner of Cassano that certainly does not shine for the diplomacy of the terms with which it is expressed.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta he had to run for cover for understandable reasons, including the façade. Days ago in a speech at the Trento Festival, the CEO of Inter reserved a jab to the Bari in a comparison with Barella: «Nicolò has transformed from talent to champion. For example, Antonio Cassano from talent has never become a champion. He has never accompanied the technical qualities to the human ones », the words of the Nerazzurri manager.
Phrase that obviously struck Fantantonio who on Bobo TV, Bobo Vieri’s thematic channel from which he now expresses himself on everything, has countered with abundant doses of poison.
“Marotta is a football incompetent and does not know the players. He asked me who they were, imagine a little. On a human level I don’t have to learn anything from Marotta, he has nothing to do with football. He calls all the journalists, because he wants to have relationships, he is a great football politician. He called the reporters and wrote that he was good. If he managed to go to Juve it is thanks to me. Perhaps he is still poisoned with me when I try to sell myself to Fiorentina without Garrone’s knowledge … “Poison words that are now awaited yet another rejoinder from the Nerazzurri ad.
