Mido: I left Roma for Spurs due to Totti

Mido admits Francesco Totti was the reason for his departure from Roma.

The Egyptian striker joined the Giallorossi in 2004, but played just 14 games for the club without scoring a single goal.

“After the 2006 Supercoppa, Totti decided to become the central striker," Mido told On Sport.

“[Agent Mino] Raiola advised me to stay at Roma, but I told him no. I could compete with anyone in the world, except Totti.

“So that's why I went to Tottenham."
