Totti smashes leaders
Francesco Totti has not been with the back of the spoon on Monday afternoon, to announce his departure from AS Roma. Present at the club since the age of 13 years, the former attacker is Italian 42-year-old has decided to abandon his role as technical director because of the relationships with its officers and, in particular, Franco Baldini, adviser of the president Pallotta.
“Everyone knows they (the leaders) forced me to stop my career. As a leader, I had a long contract. I made a lot of promises without much results. There are some people who have always wanted to ‘de-romanise him’ the Roma. Finally, they have succeeded.” said Totti. “(…) I’ve never had a relationship with Baldini. The last word in terms of decision always came from London (Baldini). It was necessary that something happens, and I have therefore taken the decision to leave. I would have preferred to die than to leave the Roma one day.”
