Roma captain Totti: I trained through my summer hols

AS Roma captain Francesco Totti says he didn't take a break during the summer holidays.

Totti is determined to have a big season for Roma as they emerge as genuine title contenders.

He said: “I worked during the holidays. For me, it’s fundamental to stay in shape seeing the problem with my knee. Now I am two kilos underweight. It’s better this way.

“Our objective is to win something, as a team we are worthy of the Scudetto, but if I had to choose, I’d say the Champions league: it’s the only important trophy that I am missing.

“My personal objective is that of beating Roberto Baggio’s record of 205 goals in Serie A. I am convinced that I’ll be able to do it this season.

“We want to start on the right foot in the Italian Super Cup and win a trophy quickly because it’s important. It would be a little revenge for us.”
