The former Italy international ended its thirty-year association with Giallorossi in severe circumstances last June. Hitting Pallotta for not involving him sufficiently in the decision-making process.
I won’t step in Trigoria says Totti
Francesco Totti will not put his foot inside the Roma training ground, while the president of the club remains James Pallotta. In May 2017, after 786 appearances for Roma, Totti retired and scored 307 goals, moving to Stadio Olimpico. However, the former Italy international ended its thirty-year association with Giallorossi in severe circumstances last June. Hitting Pallotta for not involving him sufficiently in the decision-making process. Totti said that he would return to Roma only under different possessions. And now he can’t even force himself to watch his son Cristian play for Under-15. “Look, as long as the circumstances are like that, I won’t step in Trigoria,” Totti said in a conversation on Instagram Live with Luca Toni.
Totti thinks that he retired too early from Roma
“Every time I throw Cristian to training, I stay out of the gate. Sometimes I sit and feel like shedding in tears to think that after 30 years, I can’t even step there now. I still have great friends, and they go outside the gate to say hello. From time to time, my son asks me to come and see how he plays, but I can’t do it. It would kill me. Totti felt that he was forced into hanging his shoes earlier than I would like because Roma went against previous promises and made a decision out of his hands. “I did not want to stop playing. I was in good physical shape, so why should I stop? It’s not that I always wanted to play or tried to force someone to play me,” he said.
I would cut off my leg for Roma!
“I did not want to spoil my time at Roma, so it’s better to retire and not go somewhere else for a year. I’m not stupid, I’m not ten years old, but if I’m physically and mentally in good shape, I can see during training, that there is still much to give and I give in to anyone. “I would be happy just to help the coach in difficult moments, work with younger players to convey my experience.” Every time I went out from the bench, the stadium caught fire, and this atmosphere helped everyone. “There is an end to everything, I’m not stupid, but the problem is that some e people have told me that it would be my decision, and then pushed me to one side. I was upset because I would cut off my leg for Roma.”
