Gigi Buffon has backed Antonio Cassano to have a successful year despite his troubled start to the campaign.

The Roma youngster was sent-off in Week 1 and was then suspended by his club for three days after a misunderstanding with boss Rudi Voller.

That has led to mass criticism of the Italian starlet but Buffon has defended his international colleague.

"It is true that Cassano has made some stupid mistakes but he’s a champion and he’ll prove that on the pitch," said the Juventus ‘keeper.

"These things can happen to all players but he just needs time to recover. I’m convinced that he will have a positive season."

The Azzurri starlet will have an opportunity this evening to make amends as the Giallorossi take on Lecce.

Cassano is expected to start the game after convincing Coach Voller that he is in the right frame of mind to play.

The former Bari ace is set to partner Vincenzo Montella. Francesco Totti will begin on the bench after recovering from injury.

? What has Buffon to do with that? None of his business if you ask me.

But he's definitively right. Cassano is a great player and will have a good season.

he must give his opinion on everything.

Hey Gigi, what do you think about offering trauma support to suicidal monkeys?
Gigi: 'I think its a great idea. Monkeys are people too'

This is all a ploy in order to plant the seeds for Cassano's eventual move to Juve.


Unless a player from Lecce comes out and says the same thing.

Not a chance, Cassano like Totti will be at Roma forever.

Cassano is brilliant, but he is still young, people should stop critising him, everytime he even the tiniest mistake!
