Trainer Spalletti asks Roma to new contract Totti (40)
Coach Luciano Spalletti wants AS Roma to the contract of Francesco Totti extends. The current commitment of the 40-year-old old hand runs next summer.
“I am convinced that the club the contract of Totti should extend. I don’t want him to stop as I trainer am. And if he should stop, I leave,” said Spalletti, whose contract is also coming the end of summer, Sunday after the 4-1 thuiszege of Roma at Torino.
Next month it is 23 years ago, that Totti, as a 16-year-old debuted in the beginning of the Roma. The 58-fold international never played for another club and so it is for Spalletti is almost unthinkable that he will ever leave Roma.
“Extending the contract for Totti would of course need to be. Actually, he didn’t even have a contract, but a liefdespact with the city.”
Although Spalletti praised is about Totti, the Italian trainer this season, often unable to rely on him. Against Torino he came as a substitute within the lines and he gave the assist to the 4-1 of Radja Nainggolan.
Only once put Spalletti Totti this season in the base, but the trainer stressed that the Roman also has value if he is not playing. “A team has a leader like Totti necessary. As long as we don’t have a new leader if he is found, he must remain.”
Spalletti with Roma in second place in the Serie A with seven points behind leader Juventus. Thursday plays the club of Rome in the Europa League at home against Villarreal. Last week won Roma the heenwedstrijd in Spain with 0-4.
