Antonio Cassano slams Inter Milan for letting Ivan Perisic join Tottenham

Italy icon Antonio Cassano has slammed Inter Milan for letting Ivan Perisic to leave them for Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

Perisic was one of Inter’s best players during his time there. He provided an incredible balance between attack and defence for the Nerazzuri, but since his departure, they’ve looked clueless at times.

Antonio Cassano slams Inter Milan for letting Ivan Perisic join Tottenham

Perisic’s contract expired at the end of last season and Inter were desperate to keep hold of him.

However, the Croatian’s salary demands made things difficult for the Italian giants, who decided in the end that they will not pay him what he wants to retain his services.

Perisic was not short of offers at all, but the only club that met his demands was Tottenham, who snapped him up on a two-year deal this summer. The 33-year-old has been incredible for Spurs so far, and Cassano can’t help but notice how much Inter are missing him.

He said on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel, as quoted by Sempre Inter: “Perisic is really missing from this team, Inter had to keep him at all costs.

“I’ve been saying this from the beginning of the season, if Gosens does not get back to his Atalanta form it will be a big problem.”

“The team is struggling on all levels. From a physical to a mental point of view. Inter must be careful, now they’re constantly playing until November and they’re not in good form.”

TBR View:

Inter haven’t looked great at all this season. Even though they’ve won four of their six league games so far, they have been really poor, which is a huge worry.

Their biggest area of concern at the moment is left-wing-back, a position that Perisic had made his own during his time at the San Siro.

Now, the Croatian is doing the same at Tottenham.

Branded as ‘amazing’, Perisic has been fantastic for Spurs since the start of the campaign, and his experience could really help Antonio Conte’s side achieve something special this term.

It’s no surprise that Inter are missing Perisic, but Tottenham fans will not care about that for one second.
