His latest attack came after being asked the question of what he would do if he had a young Francesco Totti as a client.

He told DAZN per The Sun: "I would not send him to play at Roma because they would sell him pretty quickly."

Roma have sold influential players over the last few years such as Alisson Becker and Konstantinos Manolas.

It seems that the club are resigned to losing their best players every year despite reaching the Champions League semi-final's in 2018.

However, he didn't want to hang up his boots in 2017 and claims the club hierarchy ensured his career finished early.

"Everyone knows they made me stop playing.

"They wanted me to stop. I had a six-year contract already as a director."

He also went on to discuss the issues he had with director Franco Baldini and that he felt only one of them could say at the club.

"The rapport with Franco Baldini (has never existed and never will. If I made this decision, it's only normal that there were misunderstandings, problems within the club.

"One of us had to go. I stepped aside because you can't have too many people sticking their oar in and causing chaos."

Totti's love for Roma was one of football's longest enduring romances and a reminder of why we loved the game.

His passion for the club was evident when he made his goodbye speech in 2017.

In a 12 minute speech, the Italian poured out his heart and soul to his adoring fans, who were filmed crying in the stands.

To see it crumble seemingly before our eyes is hard to watch.

However, the last few years shouldn't soil the legendary career he had.

His career was anything but trophy-laden, but he did manage to win the Scudetto in 2000/2001 as well as two back-to-back Coppa Italias in 2006/07 and 2007/08.
