In an interview, former Italian international Cassano talked about the new season's Serie A championship and the competition for Champions League qualification. At the same time, he also talked about Pirlo, Gattuso and Juventus's intention to introduce Federico Chiesa.
"Juventus have two lineups, they are still the favorites to win the championship, Inter are behind them. As for the Champions League qualification, Atlanta will definitely be one of them, they have a very good player like Ilicic." Cassano said.
"We have been talking about Dybala. He is a good player. At Juventus, he is regarded as a champion or a phenomenon, but Ilicic is a true champion. He treats an ordinary team. Brought to the Champions League."
"Then fourth place I would say is Lazio. Their players are very familiar with each other and are very integrated. Milan? They only have one phenomenal player, Ibrahimovic, except him?"
"Pirlo? He is not a gamble. He has proven himself on the court for 25 years. He needs to find the right chemistry, but he doesn't need too much time. He knows how to mobilize other people. He already has it in the player era. With that kind of ability, he is now coaching the best clubs in Italy and one of the best clubs in Europe. These will help him."
"Juventus buy Chiesa? Where are Juventus putting him? I would not buy a very expensive player and let him be a substitute. Pirlo has no shortage of people on the wing. What Juventus needs is other types of players. Like a defender and Morata's backup."
"Gattuso and Pirlo? Gattuso is a better coach and Pirlo is a better player (laughs). I really like Gattuso's creativity as a coach. Pirlo was once phenomenal Player, he is also lucky to be able to drive Ferrari right away as a coach."
