BE LIKE MESSI
Cassano was initially baffled as to how the former Juventus star got his number, writes WILLIAM PUGH.
But it later emerged the link was Gianluigi Buffon – a former team-mate of both men.
Cassano added: “I asked Gigi how he could have my number.
“And he confirmed he had given it to the press officer, who passed it on to Cristiano.”
Ronaldo recently reached 800 career goals and he is said to have mentioned his fabulous record when engaging with controversial Cassano.
He went on to explain: “He told me that he scored 750 goals and I only 150.
“Dear Cristiano, I tell you one thing: you have everything, live more calm and relaxed.
“Be like Messi, who does not care, instead of writing to me.
“Buffon and [Giorgio] Chiellini know that this made me angry.
“Cristiano, what’s wrong with you? What is your problem?”
