Francesco Totti missed the Rome derby, but “really enjoyed this deserved victory from home.”
The captain was suspended for the biggest game of his season and was so upset that he opted to watch on television rather than in the Stadio Olimpico stands.
“It was a great game that Roma deserved to win,” wrote Totti on his official blog.
“It was wonderful to see Leandro Greco do so well coming off the bench, as he grew up in the Giallorossi youth academy, is Roman and Romanista to the core.
“I really enjoyed this victory from home. For all this I thank my fans and my teammates, sending a warm embrace from your Franceschino.”
Totti also had a message for Inter defender and former Roma teammate Walter Samuel, who will be out for the rest of the season after damaging knee ligaments.
“A rock solid defender and great former teammate, including the year of the Scudetto. These are tough times and I know how it feels. Best of luck, Walter!”
