He was also asked about


’s upcoming season and the club’s decision about appointing

“When he arrives, he will say what he thinks,” Totti said. “We have brought in the best coach in the world.

“If I would have liked to be coached by him? When I was younger, yes.”

Totti spent his playing career at Roma and even worked there as the manager until 2019. The former captain is constantly linked with a return to the club.

“I have not talked to anyone about Roma and there will not be a role for me there,” he continued and said he doesn’t expect a call from the club. “No, the phone is turned off.”

Totti also admired Roberto Mancini’s work with Italy and believes Italy could ‘go far’ at

Euro 2020


“They can go far and are showing it with the game and the passion,” Totti continued. “All the players want to win.

“If I have any advice for Mancini? I’m not a coach and he doesn’t need it.”
