Totti: “It’s Always More Difficult to Win Here”

Roma talisman Francesco Totti admitted that “it’s always more difficult to win here (Roma)”, but that his happiest memories came wearing the giallorosso shirt.

“My idol was Giuseppe Giannini, even though played in a different position. I studied his every move and positioning on the pitch. His head was always looking forward when he played. Without a doubt, the greatest satisfactions of my career were winning the World Cup and Scudetto. I’m proud of what I have achieved and to always play for the same team in my career. However, it’s always more difficult to win here. My toughest time?Directly after my ankle injury, as I really risked having to retire. Instead I came back just as good as before.”
