Totti: “Our fans are unique…”

Roma talisman Francesco Totti took to his official website to release a statement after yesterday’s match:

“Our fans are unique in the world and have once again demonstrated that last night at the end of the match that we lost against Bayern Munich with their warmth and proud attitude. I want to thank them all, but, unfortunately, I am especially filled with profound sadness at having to say goodbye to two who are no longer here: Stefano and little Cristian. From the captain of the team that they loved so much but especially as a man, a father, I extend my sincere condolences to their family. You are near.”
