    Cassano talking about his past in his interview with Dacourt on Canal Football Club

    For 17 years, I knew what it was like to starve. Really.

    My mother was a cleaner, and with the little money she earned, we’d eat on 3,000-4,000 lire [between €1-2].

    My mother made so many sacrifices. She never went to school and doesn’t speak Italian well.

    I played on the streets, in the alleyways. I’d play for whoever gave me the most money.

    That 4,000-5,000 [between €2-3] was used to help the family.

    That match against Inter made me become rich and famous. Football works wonders…

    For me that's the same nonsense like Batistuta who asked doctors to cut off his legs.

    He'll make another comeback in a few weeks time, sign for a club three months later, go to training, his lazy fat arse will be exhausted after ten minutes, back into retirement.

    It's in Dutch, but Cassano says football and footballplayers where much better back in 1999 then they are now.

    Complicated topic, but he's right about top talent and not so right on the rest. The issue is that athleticism has taken over so it's harder for "lazy" talented players to show up, but it's also true that modern football has restricted creativity and talent since all the kids that end up professional play in a similar way from their 6-10 until they sign a contract. Prior to that you had kids playing by themselves and then moving to a team if they were good enough at age 14-16. Which is why the 'best' are usually from poor backgrounds. Lionel Messi is an odd and welcome exception to this, but he was also a kid in one of the greatest generations (late 90s) so the direct influence was there.

    As for the rest of Cassano's argument, spot on. Real football is a dying breed for anyone who met this sport in earlier generations.
