Sabatini: “Totti’s return? He must be given an important role”.

Current Bologna and former Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini was interviewed in today’s edition of La Repubblica and was asked about the rumors linking Francesco Totti with a return to Roma.

The Giallorossi’s former captain and executive left the club last summer after a falling out with former president James Pallotta, who recently sold the club to fellow American, Dan Friedkin, and he is now being tipped with a return to the club under the new ownership group.

“Totti back to Roma? It’s a slippery topic,” said Sabatini.

“It makes no sense to bring Totti as some sort of ‘extra’ piece. He needs to be given an important role and get down to business — otherwise it’s better for him to keep doing what he’s doing”.

Since leaving Roma, Totti has opened a football agency and works alongside former teammates Vincent Candela and Aldair.
