Totti said: â€śI will stay with Roma for another five years, until 2014. Perhaps some people wonâ€™t like that ideaâ€¦
â€śIt is a shame that such an important lawyer said such things about me. I donâ€™t know what he was trying to achieve, but I accept them and am happy to hear the responses of President Rosella Sensi, the Mayor and other important figures.
â€śI also thank Fioranelli for his show of solidarity.â€ť
Fioranelli bitterly criticised lawyer Nicola Irti for making the statements and assured Totti was â€śmore important than Roma itself.â€ť
The controversy will have badly damaged Fioranelliâ€™s takeover bid for the club, as fans have now turned against him.
â€ś(Rosella) Sensi is and will be the President of Roma. I am proud to have her leading this club,â€ť continued Totti.
â€śAs far as I know, nobody made a truly realistic offer, so thereâ€™s no point talking about it. If it should arrive, then she might be prepared to sell.â€ť
