Zeman: Roma captain Totti Italy's only true champion

Zdenek Zeman has heaped praise on Roma captain Francesco Totti.

The former Serie A coach rates Totti as an Italian legend and was delighted to see his hat-trick against Bari on Sunday.

Zeman said: "Totti is the only champion of Italian football. I am not surprised that at 33 he is still playing at these levels.

"Totti was good even before I arrived, even if he was not playing regularly because he was too young. But to say he is a champion I did not need to see him score three goals yesterday against Bari."
