Prandelli delighted Totti penned new Roma deal

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is delighted seeing Francesco Totti sign a new AS Roma deal last week.

Prandelli hasn't shut the door on Totti's return with the Azzurri.

"Signing a new contract is an extraordinary signal for Totti, as it means he will continue playing until he's 40 and probably overcome every record.

"He deserves it, because he is a champion who decided to stay in his city forever. He chose with his heart and I have always liked that sort of approach.

"Totti remains a great player and we are tracking his progress for the Nazionale, as we do all players. We haven't set a veto on anyone."
