Tommasi ‘not surprised’ by Totti

Francesco Totti’s continuing impact for Roma is not surprising, according to his former teammate Damiano Tommasi.

The Giallorossi’s 39-year-old captain came off the bench to inspire a comeback win over Sampdoria on Sunday, scoring the winning penalty in stoppage time.

However, in the eyes of his former club and international colleague, Totti is the beneficiary of the determination and versatility that he has shown throughout his career.

“I am not surprised,” Tommasi said during an interview with Radio Anch’io Lo Sport. “Francesco has always been very determined throughout his career. From this point of view, we know him.

“He has done well to change his approach to matches, managing to be decisive when he comes onto the field.

“It’s not enough to just have two exceptional feet to be at this level. It’s also about determination and passion for the field of play.”
