âTotti is that player,â grinned coach Luciano Spalletti. âHe has quality, those moments that can change a match from free kicks or open play. He is phenomenal.
âClearly we were aided by the fact Gent had a man sent off before half-time, but this time the team went out on form and concentrated. Iâm convinced that, regardless of lucky incidents, we still wouldâve taken home the win.â
Totti was inspirational with his treble in Belgium, sending Roma through to the play-offs 10-2 on aggregate.
âThe important thing was to go through,â insisted the captain. âIt was not an easy game and they were very motivated. Now we can go all the way in this competition, even if there is a long road ahead of us.â
