Since Antonio Cassano was taken to the neurology department of a Milan hospital on Saturday night after his club returned from Saturday's win in Rome, worrying rumors have come out about his condition. Mainly, that he suffered a stroke. Though Milan said on Tuesday that they will release a "clarifying statement" on Wednesday, that did little to calm fears about the 29-year-old striker's condition.
But after Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in Milan's 1-1 Champions League draw against BATE in the 22nd minute, Kevin-Prince Boateng revealed their tribute to Cassano by taking off his shirt to show he was wearing Cassano's No. 99 underneath. And making the tribute even better was the fact that the referee must not have seen it (or chose to ignore it), because Boateng wasn't booked for taking off his shirt.
