Totti twice played for Spalletti, the second time seeing him frozen out by his old boss.
“They were two different people: the first Spalletti was a top guy because he was like a second father to me. He was someone I was with for almost 24 hours of each day," he told Sky Sport Italia.
“The second Spalletti will have had his reasons or listened to other people. I won't say that he was out to get me, but things certainly didn't go in the best way with him.
“I always tried to keep my head up and do my best during his second tenure, even if I was having problems."
