Roma coach Spalletti coy on Totti return

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti refuses to let on if he play skipper Francesco Totti in tonight's huge game against Inter Milan. “I need time to think about it. I have seen Francesco has improved a great deal, he is fired up and that is crucial. He has something more than the other players and can give the team a real hand,” said Spalletti. “Inter have absolutely nothing more than Roma at the moment. Our side showed all its worth in some big games and I am convinced our players know how hard they fought to get here, so they can’t be happy with the current results.
