Totti on leadership

Ahead of the Rome derby this weekend, Francesco Totti has commented on what it means to be a leader in football.

The Giallorossi play their city rivals this Sunday at Stadio Olimpico, looking for the three points that could take them to within six of leaders Juventus.

And they will almost certainly do so with their legendary captain leading them out.

“There is no secret to being a successful leader,” he told reporters at a Nike event this afternoon.

“The most important thing is to understand the group, and respect your Coach and teammates.

“It’s also useful to be available to everyone and stay humble, even in your highest moments.

“I think that’s what you need if you’re going to be a top leader.”
