Totti: 'No MLS for me'

Francesco Totti hopes Roma can “compete at the top level in Europe soon” and rules out a career move to the MLS.

The Giallorossi are beginning their summer tour of the USA and Canada, which will see games against the MLS All-Stars, Toronto and Chelsea.

“Could I follow Marco Di Vaio to the MLS? He made a lifestyle choice,” said Totti in a Press Conference.

“I have a contract with Roma that I intend to respect and am focused solely on Roma. I can only speak highly of Di Vaio. He told me he’s very happy about moving to Canada.”

Roma are out of Europe for the second year running, but are eager to push for silverware under new Coach Rudi Garcia.

“The club is trying to put together a squad that can compete at a high level,” added the captain.

“You win titles with strong players. We hope to compete at the highest level in Europe soon.”
