Cassano’s crazy career comes to an end

Oct 17, 2018, 03:31 PM

This week on Golazzo, we marvel at the player who has announced his retirement from football (for the third time), the one and only Antonio Cassano.

The boy from Bari who loved football but probably not as much as he loved sex and sugar.

Cassano packed more into his career than most – including heart surgery and over 700 women.

Jimbo, James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti reminisce about a man who says if he made the most of his talent, he wouldn’t be on planet Earth right now.

Elsewhere, Italy finally win a game as they beat Poland in the Nations League. The panel look at a hugely encouraging result, performance and selection from Roberto Mancini.

And of course, we pay tribute to the voice of Italian football in the UK, the legend that passed away earlier this week, Mr Peter Brackley.
