Several players have commented positively on the news that Cassano's long awaited signing has been completed - but with the Bari superkid not arriving at the club until the summer - are intent on focusing on the present.
Francesco Totti handed a glowing tribute to a player that has admitted he is the Roma captain's biggest fan, stating: "Cassano? Together we will score a lot of goals."
Brazilian veteran Antonio Carlos Zago was more sober about the situation saying: "Cassano is a great player but he has never played in a great side, so he will be coming here to learn his trade."
Gabriel Batistuta is on the road to recovery but will not be rushed back prematurely - especially with Vincenzo Montella providing good cover in his absence.
Montella stated recently: "I am mentally and physically fit. Sunday's game against Brescia will be tough, but, then again, so is every Sunday!"
