There’s no other thought than Roma-Genoa now, and I don’t know if it really will be Totti’s farewell,’ Roma manager Spalletti told Gazzetta dello Sport.
Francesco Totti’s imminent retirement has been thrown into doubt, as Roma manager Luciano Spalletti said he doesn’t know the player’s plans.
Totti had been expected to finally hang up his boots at the end of the season, after 25 years at the Serie A club.
But manager Spalletti claims the player, who has not yet made a formal statement on his future, may not be making a farewell appearance.
‘He must say what he plans to do and I don’t know what he’s thinking.
‘Certainly, during the game, he’ll have the opportunity to help his team-mates win for a Champions League [group-stage] spot.’
Totti, 40, made his first-team debut in March 1993 as a 16-year-old, having come through the club’s academy.
Despite been relegated to the role of a bit-part player in recent seasons, but has still managed to play a part in 23 games this year, as Roma pushed Juventus hard for the Serie A title.
A win in the final game against Genoa will ensure Roma an automatic Champions League spot next season, while defeat could see them slip behind Napoli into third, meaning they would need to play a qualifier for Europe’s elite competition.
