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