Totti believes Spalletti hastened his retirement last season when he was in charge of Roma.
He told Sky Italia: “There has never been a clarification with Spalletti and there never will be. I'd have preferred to close my career in a different way.
“If I were him, I'd have dealt with the player, and above all the person, in a different way. I'd have talked to him and confronted our ideas.
“In any case, I've been able to make this step from player to Roma director and I did it with the right spirit: that of harmony, intelligence and maturity. I grew up on that pitch and I'll die on it too.
“I don't think there is another Totti who could stay this long at Roma. Football is more of a business now and it's tough for young players to remain in one club for a lifetime, like me or Daniele De Rossi. It's impossible to see that again.
“Besides, before there was more of a focus on the promising Italian youngsters rather than discovering the next Brazilian, Argentinean or South American talent."
