Cassano enjoys Inter Milan debut

Antonio Cassano has described his new Inter Milan team-mates as "easy" to play alongside after impressing on his debut for the Nerazzurri in their 3-0 win over Pescara.

Cassano, 30, arrived from AC Milan in exchange for close friend Giampaolo Pazzini last week and was put straight into the starting line-up as injuries limited the choices of manager Andrea Stramaccioni.

And the Italy international produced a fine performance in the victory, which was achieved thanks to goals from Wesley Sneijder, Diego Milito and Philippe Coutinho.

"The important thing was to bring home the three points and it was a good performance as the team played well," Cassano told Sky Italia. " I am very happy. Playing with Milito and Sneijder is easy, it's very simple for me to combine with such quality team-mates."

Stramaccioni, praised Cassano after the new signing helped the club make a perfect opening to the new Serie A season.

"I wanted to play with two strikers and an attacking midfielder. He repaid my faith with his performance," Stramaccioni said.

Stramaccioni is the man charged with reviving Inter's fortunes following last season's disappointing sixth-place finish and he added: "We're happy. It's only the first step but we're happy. Let's say it's a good start, but we know there are things we still need to work on.

"A great team that takes a 2-0 lead into the dressing room at half-time at a difficult ground is a strong one. Our quality comes through when we move the ball around."
