Roma captain Totti: Italian football can learn from Barcelona

AS Roma captain Francesco Totti says Italian football can learn from Barcelona's success. Barca trio Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Lionel Messi are the three final nominations for this year's Ballon d'Or.

And Totti said: "They have three homegrown players in the top three of the Ballon d'Or, we have no one. They always focus on young players. We do not.

"And we also have other problems, such as stadiums and fields. You cannot play in certain conditions, Roma have paid for this handicap in Verona."
