Francesco Totti Lashes Out At Roma And Tells Agents To Not Deal With Them
Francesco Totti has take a sensational swipe at former club Roma by telling agents to not do business with the club.
The Roma legend quit his role as player director in the summer and has since been involved in a huge fallout with his boyhood club.
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.
Totti made an incredible 786 appearances for Roma throughout his career and scored 307 goals in his 25 years as a first-teamer.
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.
