Which footballer claims to have slept with 700 women?
The ladies – they cannot resist this handsome devil
Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano is known for his short temper and on-pitch hissy fits, yet in his autobiography, the 26-year-old reveals his near-legendary inability to keep his pants on when attractive women are around. Cassano, who once called the irrefutably-gifted Rosaria Cannavò his girlfriend, claims to have put away somewhere in the region of 700 ladies. Our German friends at Bild report:
“I was engaged four times in eleven years, and I experienced some adventures. I slept with between 600 and 700 girls, 20 of whom belong to the world of the show business.”
During his time at Real Madrid – where his constant unprofessional behaviour and displays of “disrespect” towards Fabio Capello saw him sidelined and suspended – Cassano enjoyed some of his best steamrollering years. The Italian says sex before games was frequent, and he could invite whomever he wanted to the team hotel. Once he had had his way with a lady, he claims he would exchange them with a friend who worked at a hotel for “three or four croissants.” He called sex and a meal “the perfect night,” but neglected to mention how football fitted into the equation.
Nowadays, Casanno is settled down with Carolina Marcialis, a 17-year-old water polo player.
