Cassano joins Fiorentina

Cassano joins Fiorentina

Antonio Cassano has signed on loan with Fiorentina for the remainder of the season. The deal was completed on Saturday.
The striker has been on loan at Sampdoria from Real Madrid since 2007 where he has hit 15 goals in 54 appearances.
In recent weeks though he has fallen out with Sampdoria coach Luigi Del Neri after he was left out of the team. In the past he argued with Del Neri when the pair were at AS Roma and left Madrid after clashing with Fabio Capello.
His volatile temper is the main reason Italy coach Marcello Lippi has given when explaining why he doesn't pick him for the national team.
