Mauro Icardi needs to return to Inter’s dressing room and clarify things, according to Antonio Cassano to the wife of the player Wanda Nara on live TV.
Wanda who is the agent of Icardi defended the player’s position after losing the captaincy two weeks ago, during Sunday’s transmission of Tiki Taka.
“In football, there are so many injustices like this penalty, Perisic’s attitude and keeping Icardi at home, someone who gave everything to Inter but is now being painted like a monster, which he’s not,” she said as cited on Football Italia.
“We all saw Perisic’s penalty sitting here, but his gesture didn’t give out tranquillity. It takes respect to be a captain and Mauro has it for everyone at Inter, their colours, and their jersey.

“Mauro must go to the dressing room to resolve problems? Enough of this rubbish. What is it, the dressing room, physiotherapy?
“He’s done nothing. It’s all non-existent drama.”
That prompted Cassano, an ex-Nerazzurri forward to weigh into the matter: “They’re playing for third place while waiting to get back Icardi…
“They need his goals. He needs to go into the dressing room and clarify his position with the players until June for his own sake.
“I say it as an interista: he needs to talk to those who have problems with him, shake their hands and in June what will be, will be.
“If they took the armband off me? I would’ve gone crazy, but he doesn’t have to stay out of the team until June.
“Neither the club nor Spalletti are crazy. There were some problems, but they’ve clarified them for the good of Inter.

Cassano also defended Perisic’s action after suggesting Icardi isn’t in good terms with a section of the players.
“There was nothing in Perisic’s gesture, but I think Icardi has problems with the Slavs in the squad.”
Inter managed to secure one point from the tie (3-3) after blowing away a two-goal lead.
