Roma skipper Totti won't rush comeback

Roma captain Francesco Totti says he won't rush his comeback from knee surgery.

"I feel good. I have some small pains, but nothing to worry about," Totti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It's true that I have to overcome the fear. When the ball comes there is always a reflex that wants you to protect your leg.

"But that is part of the game and the training games are helping me to get past that obstacle."

Roma are hoping to count on Totti for the Italian Super Cup against Inter on August 24, but he won't take any risks to be there.

"I will play for a bit against Frosinone," Er Pupone revealed. "The objective is to get back for the Super Cup but I'm not losing sleep over playing on August 24.

"If I am ready that will be good, but otherwise I will delay the talk of a return.

"I won't be going to London with the team. I will stay at Trigoria to train because I must keep working well if I am to return soon."
