Antonio Cassano claims that he could not have played under new Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri.

Antonio Cassano has blamed new manager Walter Mazzarri for his exit at Inter Milan.

The 30-year-old completed his move to Parma yesterday and thanked president Massimo Moratti, sporting director Marco Branca and director Piero Ausilio for his time with the Nerazzurri.

However, the Italian international claims that Mazzarri, who recently took over from Andrea Stramaccioni, lied to him about his role in the team.

"I thank [president Massimo] Moratti, [sporting director Marco] Branca and [director Piero] Ausilio, but not Mazzarri," he told reporters.

"Before he signed he told me that I was a fixed starter with the team and then after he arrived he said I was a starter, but one that should go home.

"He pushed me to go away. I went away because I could not return to Inter in his plans."
