Roma's Totti: I could never make Italy return

Roma captain Francesco Totti has ruled out a return to the Italy team.

"I know the rules of the squad and out of respect I could never consider returning to the Azzurri," said Totti. "My decision to leave the national team was made precisely after winning the World Cup in Germany.

"I asked the Federation for patience and they gave that to me. My relationship with them and Roberto Donadoni has always been civil."
