Sampdoria general director Giuseppe Marotta has leapt to the defence of temperamental striker Antonio Cassano.

Cassano was on the receiving end of stinging criticism from both fans and team-mates for his decision to walk off the pitch after picking up an injury midway through Sunday´s 2-0 defeat to Catania.

Marotta said: "I continue to believe that Cassano is a highly sensitive person. He needs to be helped because alone he cannot cope with the media pressure that always want to perceive him as a difficult person."
