Totti: '20 years of love'

Francesco Totti is looking forward to facing Chelsea in Washington and described his “20 years of love” at Roma.

The Giallorossi captain was given a standing ovation by the Toronto FC crowd during a 4-1 friendly victory in Canada this week.

“It was a wonderful day and I really didn’t expect that welcome,” he said in a Press conference.

“The game with Chelsea will be prestigious and we want to make a good impression.”

Totti made his Serie A debut for Roma in March 1993 and was asked whether he’d ever leave his hometown club.

“It has been 20 years of love with the same jersey and I think it was a great life experience. The MLS? It’d be very difficult, because I have a contract with Roma and want to respect it. I am not thinking of other teams or other Leagues.

“I have been fortunate to play with many very important players in my career. I can say that this season the squad is very united, eager to have a great campaign and to show off the potential of every individual.”
