Capello warns Ranieri over changing Totti's Roma role

England's former Roma coach Fabio Capello has urged Claudio Ranieri not to withdraw Francesco Totti from his attacking role.

England's former Roma coach Fabio Capello has urged Claudio Ranieri not to withdraw Francesco Totti from his attacking role.

“Totti on a footballing level is something extraordinary. In my opinion, Totti's position is as close to the goal as possible,” Capello told Radio Anch'io Sport.

“[Ranieri] can invent something new, but I think that carrying Totti away from the goal would be a crime.”

Capello did have some kind words to say on Ranieri's band of Giallorossi.

“Roma have a great potential, they are one of the teams that should absolutely qualify for the Champions League and they have the potential to do it.”
