Roma captain Francesco Totti could be back for next week's clash with Cagliari - courtesy of a specially-designed boot.

Totti has been out of action since Liedson's tackle on his right ankle during the 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon on October 23.

"We hope to have Totti back for the game against Cagliari," explained chief medic Mario Brozzi on Rete Sport. "He has been training for several days and we are building a special boot just for him to block the movement of the ankle."
