Cassano makes Milan-Leicester City comparison in Serie A title race

by | Apr 26, 2022 11:39

Former Italy striker Antonio Cassano says that Milan winning the title would be a feat comparable to Leicester City’s Premier League triumph in 2016.

The Rossoneri have a two-point lead over second-placed Inter, but the Nerazzurri have a game in hand, which they will play away at Bologna on Wednesday.

“If Milan win the title, it would be a miracle, comparable to Leicester City’s,” Cassano told Bobo TV.

“Many predicted Milan would finish fourth or fifth, but they are still the table leaders. Paolo Maldini said something true, Milan have won the Scudetto twice in the last 20 years. It would not be the same as Leicester, but something very similar.

Maldini: ‘Milan always believed in Scudetto when nobody else did’

“Looking at Milan players, you can’t see a team that can win the title. What Stefano Pioli is doing is incredible and I am happy that the two clubs that deserve it most are fighting for the title.”

Cassano was part of the Milan squad the last time the Rossoneri won the title in 2010-11 with Massimiliano Allegri in charge. The ex-striker is no longer on good terms with the Bianconeri coach, who, he claimed, does not talk to him anymore.

Cassano also spent one season at Inter (2012-13), scoring nine goals in 39 appearances before his move to Parma. Inter won their first title in 11 years last season under Antonio Conte and can return to the top of the table if they win away at Bologna in two days. Cassano retired in 2017 after a one-year and a half years at Sampdoria in his second spell at the club.

    Nah, no way. What Leicester did was special, probably it is like Salernitana to stay up and win the Serie-A title next season.

    What Leicester did was show that the EPL is a two team league and when they underperform, even Ranieri can win the league. That was a funny season. It was Ranieri! Just let that sink in LOL

    Once again Fantonio goes to great lengths to prove he knows absolutely nothing about football. I wish Italian media outlets would stop using this man as a valid opinion.

    This guy exaggerates a bit too much.

    “The ex-striker is no longer on good terms with the Bianconeri coach” – is he on good terms with ANY of his coaches, or even his teamates? I still remember how he badmouthed Milan after leaving, and his celebration when his new team beat Milan (just like that Turk whom i don’t even want to mention his name). Players like him need some education first.
