AS Roma management are furious with Francesco Totti's dismissal in victory over Lecce.

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.”
