Speaking to Radio Uno, Alessandro Del Piero has urged Luciano Spalletti to play Francesco Totti in what is likely to be his final game for Roma against Genoa. There are just two games left this season, and the Juventus legend has called on the Roma coach to play Totti in next week’s clash at the Olimpico – even if the Giallorossi are still fighting to hold onto 2nd place.
Will you watch Roma-Genoa at the Olimpico on 28th May, for what will probably be Francesco Totti’s last game?
Yes, I’m due to go back to Italy, but because I have to work I’ll probably be watching it from Milan. I went to Rome for the game against Juventus and met Francesco then.
Who was better out of you and Totti?
I prefer to put players into categories. He is in the top category, among the great champions who are always able to excite you.
Have you been disappointed by the way Totti has been treated by Luciano Spalletti?
I’ve been sorry to see that there have been a number of sad moments for him this season, but that’s the way it goes. Only Totti, Spalletti and the club know the truth, only they can answer these sort of questions.
Would you play Totti in the final game of the season between Roma and Genoa, even if the result still matters for Roma?
Of course, obviously yes.
