Roma pair Luciano Spalletti and Francesco Totti are attempting to rescue Spezia from oblivion.

Spezia need to raise around £1m by March 28 if they are to prevent the club from going into administration.

A foundation called "We are Spezia" has been set up to raise funds and they have received help from some of Italy's leading lights.

Spalletti made a generous contribution last week and Totti has agreed to auction off a signed shirt with the proceeds going to Spezia.

It's a race against time for Spezia, who have so far raised just £200,000.
