AS Roma caretaker coach Aurelio Andreazzoli says he has the backing of captain Francesco Totti.

Andreazzoli believes Totti wants him to remain in charge beyond the end of the season.

"Totti has said that if we continue like this he'd like me to continue as coach next season?" he said.

"The captain buying into it is very important, of course, but he's biased: he's my buddy."
