Former Roma star reflects on the club’s legend, Totti, saying he is not at the same level of a player like Messi.

A.S. Roma

legend

Francesco Totti

fell out of Luciano Spalletti’s pecking order in his final season at the Stadio Olimpico in 2017. The Giallorossi fans have always blamed Spalletti for sidelining their beloved player in his final season and shouted their displeasure with their former coach’s decision in their Serie A clash against

Napoli

on Sunday.

Former Roma forward

Antonio Cassano

has defended his former coach against the criticisms, saying the Napoli tactician did not deserve to be booed.

“Those boos against Spalletti are a shame. He did amazing things in Rome and he loved the club,”

Cassano said on the Twitch show Bobo TV.

“For what? Because he made Totti retire? I go mad when I hear these things. Are you telling me that Totti retired because he didn’t play under Spalletti? I played in Rome, so I know what I am talking about. To me, it’s a scandal and I am sorry to say this because I had a great time in Rome.

“Spalletti had to make his choices, and when he returned, he qualified for the Champions League. Fans must think about Roma’s good, Spalletti didn’t deserve boos, but only praise. He didn’t deserve it.

“Totti will be forgotten in 20 years, only Messi, Maradona and Cruijff are eternal. De Rossi was the ‘Capitan Futuro’ but he’s been forgotten, I’ve never seen somebody who loves Roma as much as he. Totti loves Roma, De Rossi 100 times more.”
