Totti asks for support

Francesco Totti is amazed it is going to snow in Rome this weekend, as he appeals to the fans to once again back the team this weekend.

The Giallorossi welcome Inter to the Stadio Olimpico this weekend aware that defeat would open up an eight-point gap between the two sides.

Consequently, Totti has asked for the fans’ backing in helping the team to beat old Roma Coach Claudio Ranieri’s latest side.

“For the fans, I ask to stay close to Roma, because we always need their help and affection that they have always shown, especially at this time. Then, in the field we will try to repay them as soon as possible.

“It is a beautiful game, especially at this time, we absolutely want to win, so we look forward to playing.”

Because of big freeze hitting the country, the match has been moved from its original Saturday evening kick-off to Sunday afternoon.

“The snow in Rome? It’s funny because it’s a long time since we have seen snow here. It is therefore a unique moment, it’s created a nice visual effect.

“Unfortunately, it has also created problems and a number of games have been postponed for this.

“Let’s see what happens tonight, whether it snows or not. Then tomorrow we will evaluate the conditions and climate and determine whether or not we go into ritiro and train.”
