Dani Osvaldo has been waxing lyrical over his former teammate Francesco Totti and his compliments are not merely restricted to his footballing ability.
The well-travelled striker, now playing for Banfield in Argentina after a four-year hiatus from the game, was in awe of Totti and says "he was the best player he ever worked with".
But in addition to seeing his magic on the pitch when the two were at Roma together, Osvaldo stressed that everything was perfect for 'Il Capitano', from his breath to his private parts.
Dani Osvaldo on #Totti: "I told him that in my view, his wife had to be cheating on him, because there was no way he could be this perfect. He had a handsome face and, I don't want to get into too many details here, but had no problems in the private parts department either..." pic.twitter.com/U1uUEFi63O

"I told him that in my view, his wife had to be cheating on him, because there was no way he could be this perfect," Osvaldo told TNT Sports.
"He had a handsome face and, I don't want to get into too many details here, but had no problems in the private parts department either.
'He was the best player I ever worked with. He didn't even have bad breath, it was just all positive!
"There had to be something wrong with him, right? But no, his marriage was very happy too."
In the same interview, 34-year old Osvaldo revealed that he enlisted the help of both Totti and fellow Roma icon Daniele De Rossi when he got into a bit of trouble.
"I was about to get killed in a bar brawl in Rome," he explained.
"I asked Totti and Daniele De Rossi to accompany me and sort things out. I'm not stupid."
Osvaldo, who was capped 14 times for Italy, once quit football in favour of his rock music career, barbecue and beer.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, he said: "I decided to quit at Boca, there was too much gossip. I couldn't go out, I was afraid of people. I couldn't do it anymore. I had offers from China and clubs in the Champions League, but I was detached."
"I was beginning to hate what I had always loved. Football deserves respect, and I prefer asado [Argentinian barbecue] and beer to money."
