Roma president Pallotta: Great honour to work with Totti

AS Roma president James Pallotta is delighted with Francesco Totti's new deal. Totti has inked terms to 2016 in the last 24 hours.

"There's not much I can add to what's already been said about Francesco over the years," he told a Press conference. "I'm honored that Francesco is staying here and I'd like to toast to Roma and Francesco together forever.

"There was never any question of Francesco going anywhere else. The length of time the contract took was down to the fact that we had lots of other things going on. We weren't just working on Totti's contract but the whole team.

"We spent a couple of months in the transfer market and brought in a new Coach as well. There wasn't anything that was stretched out. We understood that Francesco was the leader from day one. He was always going to be here forever."
