Everybody thought we’d have been eliminated. Barcelona were happy to have been drawn with Roma. The result o the first game was expected by everybody. Not the second one though.”

Totti did also talk about his career as a footballer: “Sometimes when you play football you have to make some sacrifices. You don’t go out with friends at week-ends, you don’t go to the disco. It was I dream I had since I was I kid. I fulfilled it with determination, passion and a bit of luck as well. I’ve always wanted to be a footballer. That’s the only thing I can do.”
Talking about his future, Totti said: “Become a manager? Well, I sat on the bench for quite a long in the last two years but you can always learn positive things from negative ones.”
