Antonio Cassano spent two years at Los Blancos after starring for AS Roma, but it did not go as planned for the striker.

The Italian World Cup winner only ended up scoring two goals in 19 LaLiga appearances, before he was sent out on loan to Serie A outfit Sampdoria.

During that tough period in the Spanish captail, Cassasno reveals he picked up a lot of weight just by eating Nutella.

“When (boss, Fabio) Capello arrived I scored two goals in two games and I felt like the king of the world. He then replaced me in the first half against Lyon, I fought with him in Jerez and he took me out of the team," he said, as per Marca.

“In seven months I gained 14 kilos, I ate Nutella straight from the pot, by the spoonful, and nothing mattered. It was disgusting.

“I am very sorry to Capello, a person I really love. ”
