Roma captain Francesco Totti has hit out at his critics - again - after his successful return with a hat-trick against Bari last week.

The decision to hand him a contract extension caused controversy with some saying he was "finished" as a player.

"I am the same Totti who started the season, the one people criticised for the contract he was about to sign," he told the Corriere dello Sport.

"Now everyone seems to share the same positive view of me and that doesn't seem right, because over the course of a few months certain people's opinions have changed."
