Roma president Rosella slams Totti dismissal
The red card means Totti will be suspended for the Rome derby.
“I frankly did not understand this decision. It was not a red card,” slammed President Rosella Sensi after the 2-0 victory.
“I hope that with video evidence we can clarify the situation and the authorities can see he shouldn’t have been sent off. It is such a shame that because of this he will be suspended for the Rome derby. I am pained by this sad news.”
The ban could be a long one, as he was enraged when leaving the field and had to be held back from attacking Olivera in the tunnel.
“I know Francesco. He is a calm and tranquil lad. I really didn’t understand what happened. I won’t speak to him now, as I’ll wait for him to calm down. I’ll have many opportunities to talk to him.”
