One week has gone from the moment Serie A has finished and the Apennine peninsula is full of interesting news. 40 years old captain of Roma Francesco Totti has ended his gaming career. It is obvious that the champion of Italy 2001 is able to spent one-two seasons at Stadio Olimpico but by the words of his wife the football players has some conflict with Luciano Spalletti.
It is quite possible that on Sunday (the 28th of May) during his official farewell the ex-captain of Roma didn’t know that one day will pass and his opponent will leave Stadio Olimpico. As the former coach of Zenit has decided to change Rome for Milan and now he will head Inter. As a result, Roma is left without its captain and its head coach. And two possible losses may be Mohamed Salah (to Liverpool) and Edin Džeko (to Zenit).
