Catania coach Vincenzo Montella feels AS Roma will lose much more than a player when Francesco Totti leaves the club.

Montella played with and coached Totti while at Roma.

"Totti is the greatest exponent of the Roman world," the Catania boss said.

"He is a player who kids look up to.

"When the day arrives that he has to retire, it will be hard for Roma and the whole environment there because he is a club emblem."
