Cassano eyes retirement in three years

After netting two goals for Italy in their 3-0 victory over Northern Ireland, Antonio Cassano revealed that he was considering retiring from football in three years time, echoing comments made recently by fellow Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Talking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the 29-year-old Bari-bomber said: “I hope to find continuity with the national team, to play for three years at the most, have a good European Championships, World Cup, and then I want to stop. I’ll have another two or three children and enjoy my family. Outside of football I don’t know how to do anything, what can I be, a pundit? Let’s say that now I am tired of the routine.”
Cassano also found time to praise the work of Azzurri Coach Cesare Prandelli for helping him get his footballing career back on track. “If I am back to my best, it’s thanks to him (Prandelli). In my most difficult moments, before the game with Spain, when everyone said I was fat, I spoke with him, and he gave me faith, and that has given the momentum to get things moving with Milan.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
