Empoli’s Maccarone: Totti is still decisive

Empoli striker Massimo Maccarone spoke to Roma Radio as his team prepares to face Roma this weekend in Tuscany.

“Roma? Since 2000, they’ve had some great players like Batistuta and Cassano, then Spalletti arrive and he started a beautiful cycle. Today, they’ve returned to significant levels thanks to the many strong young players on the roster and Francesco Totti, who is still decisive. Destro? We crossed paths briefly at Siena, even then he was very strong.”
