Cassano sees himself in Balotelli

Mario Balotelli may be the current enigmatic poster boy of Italian football, but before the pig-owning, camouflage car-driving AC Milan striker, there was Antonio Cassano.

The 31-year-old's numerous spats with management and senior figures at clubs including Roma, Real Madrid, Sampdoria and AC Milan are well known.

Now at Parma following a single season with Inter, Cassano understands why comparisons might be drawn between him and Balotelli.

"Mario is a great guy," he was quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport.

"He reminds me a bit of myself when I was 20 years old."
