After un-retiring, Antonio Cassano has left Hellas Verona... and retired

Antonio Cassano

After putting Verona through the wringer by performing a retirement U-turn last week, Cassano has now left the club – and football completely. 

The 34-year-old Italian had announced his retirement from football last week, only to then change his mind hours later.

But in the space of a week, Cassano has indeed decided to leave Verona and retire from football. Sky Sports Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has cited "strong stress levels" as his reason for departing.

The former Italy international only joined the Serie B club a few weeks ago and has featured in pre-season friendlies for the club.

Is this really the end? Tune in next week for more possible U-turning on U-turns. Yes, we're as lost as you now.
