Roma captain Francesco Totti has stated that he is extremely delighted with the way the club has managed to return to Champions League after several years out of this elite competition. Roma have been consistent players in the Champions League only a few years ago, but the last few years have been very difficult for the club. The arrival of Rudy Garcia as the coach has done wonders to the team. They have not only been able to return to Champions League, but this was also the season that they almost won the title.
The title campaign suffered during the middle of the season. Otherwise, they would have been top of the table.
Now, they are set to finish in the second place several points above third placed Napoli. Totti has been an integral part of this Roma team over the years, but many thought that his time had ended.
However, he has been an important part of this Roma team as well. At the ripe old age of 40 years, Totti has been a regular first-team player. He spoke after his team managed a 1-0 win over Fiorentina. This victory helped them secure Champions League football for next season, according to the belgique coreedusud cote statistics website.
Totti pay tribute to a great Fiorentina team, but he said that this victory proves that Roma are back on track.
“Fiorentina play good football and are very strong and to beat them at home shows how we continue to improve, step by step, and proves our winning mentality. We are very happy to have gotten through to the group stages of the Champions League next year, because that was our goal going into the season and we have done it before the end of April which is a source of both pride and satisfaction,” said the Roma captain after the win.
