The last time we checked in on him, Antonio Cassano had retired, un-retired and then swiftly retired again, all in the space of a week or so.

The veteran loose cannon originally signed for Hellas Verona on 11th July only to welch on the deal and retire from football eight days later.

He then reversed that decision to retire just four hours later, before retiring again five days later citing "high stress levels" and homesickness.

Despite regular transgressions and a volatile temperament, Cassano more than repaid Bari's faith, quickly graduating from the youth sides to make his senior debut for theGalletti at the age of just 17 his grizzled face already belying his tender years, even back then.

What with Antonio Cassano having been a free agent since he left destitute Parma earlier in the season, word on the wire in Italy is that Juventus are keen to bring the 32-year-old in on a cheapo deal.

However, the man himself doesn't appear quite so keen on the idea, telling a television show that the prospect of a dalliance with the Old Lady doesn't exactly get his engine revving.

Perhaps surprisingly, Antonio Cassano has never played a single minute of World Cup football, with his inclusion in Italy's 2014 squad being the Parma striker's first ever call-up to an Azzurri World Cup squad.

Now aged 31, Cassano has admitted that he thought his chance to appear at a World Cup had passed, but thanks to a serious show of dedication he was able to persuade coach Cesare Prandelli that he was worth taking to Brazil largely due to him scoring 12 goals and dropping 10kg over the course of the 2013/14 season.
