In a video shared on social media, the legendary skipper was spotting crying in the stands as the Roma fans called for him to remain at the club in light of ongoing rumours that he’s set for the exit door.

Even without Totti, who was reportedly dropped after infuriating coach Luciano Spalletti with comments made in the Italian press, the capital club shone in their league bout on Sunday evening, running out 5-0 winners thanks to braces from Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah, and a second-half effort from Seydou Keita.
The win keeps Roma in fourth in Serie A, only two points behind third-place Fiorentina and firmly in the hunt for Champions League qualification.
However, it remains to be seen whether Il Capitano will be seen again in Europe’s premier club competition, Totti made a brief cameo as Roma fell to a 2-0 defeat by Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie, and rumours are swirling that the forward—who turns 40 later this year—will leave his boyhood club at the season’s end.
