He is vaccinated with two doses. » For its part, Sky Italia affirms that Cassano will be able to leave the hospital as of Thursday.
When Cassano advised Ronaldo to follow Messi’s example
Even if he no longer plays football, the former player who moved to Real Madrid remains present in the media. A few weeks ago, the former international distinguished himself by revealing a discussion he had had with Cristiano Ronaldo: « Cristiano wrote to me on Whatsapp to ask for more respect for everything he has won and all the goals he scored. He told me he scored 750 goals and I 150. »
In response, the 39-year-old advised the Portuguese to take his cue from the latter’s rival, namely Lionel Messi: « Dear Cristiano, I tell you one thing: you have everything, so be more calm and relaxed. Take a cue from Messi who doesn’t care what people say about him. » There is no doubt that when his condition allows it, the terrible child of Italian football will not hesitate to deliver some statements of which he has the secret.
