Nerazzurri left desperately short of attacking options for Catania clash.
Inter Milan have dropped striker Antonio Cassano for Sunday’s Serie A clash with Catania after a fiery training ground bust-up with boss Andrea Stramaccioni, reports the Guardian.
Local media reported that Cassano was suspended by the club after the pair nearly came to blows on Friday.
“What happened could happen in any changing room in Serie A,” Stramaccioni told a press conference on Saturday. “There wasn’t any physical contact, only a discussion, just as there has been in the past.”
Stramaccioni played down the incident and said Cassano would return to training on Monday and would be available for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
The 30-year-old’s suspension leaves Inter desperately short of striking options ahead of the crucial visit to Catania.
Argentine Diego Milito has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign with a knee injury, while the club failed to sign ex-West Ham, Stoke and Aston Villa striker John Carew on Friday, after the Norweigan failed a medical.
Rodrigo Palacio will likely lead the line for the match at the Stadio Angelo Massimino.
