Weight is important for an athlete, and more for a professional one. And even more at the top level in the world. But one of them, who got a transfer to Real Madrid for his amazing skills, let himself go, gained a lot of weight and blamed Nutella for that, because he could not stop eating it.
He confessed it recently in an Instagram live. He had the pleasure of playing for the Casa Blanca with Ronaldo Nazario, David Beckham, Iker Casillas and many other stars, but when his problems with food started, he got into troubles with the coach Fabio Capello and the club showed him the exit door.
That former player is Antonio Cassano, who explained that Nutella was a sponsor of Real Madrid and he was gifted five kilos of it every month. He spent the time eating it literally from the pot, and admitted it was gross. He gained 14 kilos from that. Before joining that club, he had lost 12 kilos, so he got like before.
Cassano had scored twice in his first two matches, but he got into a discussion with Capello after he subbed him off at half time, and after that he never played regularly again at the club. He played then for Sampdoria, AC Milan, Inter, Parma and Hellas Verona, but he is more famous for his anecdote of having slept with more than 700 women during his career.
