Former AS Roma boss Carlo Mazzone heaped praise on Francesco Totti after his brace in victory over Fiorentina.

Now 36, Totti is showing no signs of slowing down.

"I'm really happy for Francesco," Roma fan Mazzone told TMW on Monday afternoon. "There was a period where it seemed he was a falling star, but he has silenced everyone.

"The boy is exceptional, not only as a player but also as a man. He's a fantastic person and I'm delighted for him.

"We should all acknowledge the qualities of Totti, an important player in the history of Roma and Italian football."
