ANTONIO CASSANO slammed Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici for selling Joao Cancelo when he was at Juventus.
The Portuguese international, 28, was bought by Manchester City in 2019.
He went from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola as the Cityzens won the title last season before a furious row last month led to him joining Bayern Munich on loan.
However, Cassano believes Juventus made a terrible decision to ever let him leave.
Speaking to Bobo TV last year, he said: "I understand that Inter does it [due to financial problems], but that Juventus sells him… it seems crazy to me.
"£40million? I wouldn't have even sold him for £400m.
"It was sporting director Fabio Paratici who sold him.
"He doesn't even know how he ended up at Tottenham.
"Selling Cancelo is spitting in football's face.
"He's a phenomenon, he would make a difference even playing as a striker."

Meanwhile, Cancelo has flourished so far at Bayern as he grabbed two assists in his opening two appearances for the German giants.
