Roma captain Francesco Totti has convinced management to scrap this week's ritiro.

Totti and Daniele de Rossi met with Roma president Rosella Sensi and convinced her that ritiro wasn't in the club's best interests after their dismal performance against Fiorentina.

“We discussed all the arguments that have contributed to the unsatisfying results of this season, including disciplinary issues and the consequent bans,” announced Roma.

“It has been decided that the ritiro will be interrupted based on a precise request from the players, who guarantee to the club they will prove how strong their love for the Giallorossi colours is during these difficult times. They take on all responsibility for this decision.

“The only objective is to end the campaign in the best possible way, which is their duty towards the fans and the club.”
