Totti could´ve played for any big club - Ramos hails Roma great

Totti could´ve played for any big club - Ramos hails Roma great Totti could´ve played for any big club - Ramos hails Roma great

By far the best moment of Totti's career at Roma came in 2001 when his side clinched the Scudetto on the last day of the season, a title that he recently likened to winning 10 at another club.

On Sunday, goals from Edin Dzeko, Daniele De Rossi and Diego Perotti confirmed Roma's qualification for the Champions League group stage after lowly Genoa threatened to hold them to a draw with efforts from 16-year-old Pietro Pellegri and Darko Lazovic.

'I'm one of Totti's favourite victims, ' the Juventus goalkeeper said in a post on Roma's Twitter account. This time I can not see through the holes in the net what lies beyond. You try to get back to sleep, but will never be back in that same dream.

"This time it wasn't a dream, it was reality". It's so deep I can't imagine not fuelling it any longer.

Thousands of fans wore Totti's No. 10 shirt - in white or red - while others had T-shirts that read simply, "captain forever".

It is still unconfirmed what he will do next, but an offer from Roma is on the table to become a director with a meeting scheduled on Monday.

Crotone seemed doomed at the start of April, but took 20 points from their last nine games to stay up.

38 - Against CSKA Moscow in November 2014, Totti became the oldest player to score a Champions League goal, at the age of 38 years and 59 days.

Cavs Beat Celtics As LeBron James Tops NBA's All-Time Playoff Scoring List
This season, there was no luck at all in Boston being one of the last four teams with games on the docket. It's something that the Celtics will now turn their attention to with their playoff run now over.


Daniele De Rossi thought he'd got the victor in the 74th minute but Darko Lazovic levelled soon after. My message for him is to do what he feels is right to do.

But by the end of a valuable win that secured Roma's place in next season's Champions League, the evergreen playmaker experienced a send-off that saw nearly the entire stadium shed tears.

Totti may not have found the net on his swansong but he gave his adoring fans inside the Stadio Olimpico something to shout about with a glorious touch using his back.

Ousmane Dembele's eighth-minute opener for Dortmund was cancelled out by Ante Rabic in the 29th-minute before Aubameyang chipped in for his decisive strike in the second half - his 40th of the season.

Totti set up a chance for Stephan el Shaarawy with a great pass but rarely looked like adding to his own tally.

Going into the game, Totti was subject to a whole host of tributes from the football world, and both Roma and today's opponents Genoa commemorated the occasion with special shirts. I'll fold it away, even though I'm not ready to say "enough" and perhaps I never will be.

Totti appeared in 786 matches in all competitions with Roma, third all-time in Italy for most games with a single club behind only Paolo Maldini (902 with AC Milan) and Javier Zanetti (858 with Inter Milan).
