Totti closer to Roma comeback

Francesco Totti took part in training today, though it remains to be seen whether he could recover for Sunday’s Roma-Fiorentina.

The Giallorossi captain has been out of action since October 18 with a hamstring problem and gradually increased his training regime over the last few days.

Today Totti trained separately from the rest of the squad for the fitness rota, but came together with the others for Rudi Garcia’s tactical lessons.

More importantly, he also took part in a small game between ranks, which means it could be possible he’d be in the squad to face Fiorentina on Sunday at 11.30 GMT.

Daniele De Rossi and Miralem Pjanic trained separately today as a precautionary measure.

Roma have missed the 37-year-old forward, scraping only four consecutive stalemates to lose the Serie A leadership.
