The former captain talked about the coach and the upcoming final.
Former Roma captain Francesco Totti has come out to air his view on the possible departure of Jose Mourinho after the Europa League final.
The Portuguese coach is being linked with a few clubs across Europe after leading AS Roma to their second successive European final.
Totti wants the former Inter manager to remain beyond the final but admitted that nothing is certain in football.
“Mourinho’s future? This is football, anything can happen. It is a decision that is up to him, a decision that he and the club will have already made and will communicate at the end of the Europa League. I don’t know what the coach has decided on, but I hope he can stay at Roma.” He told Corriere dello Sport.
Mourinho will be on the bench when Roma take on Sevilla in Budapest to determine the Europa League champions but Totti fears it could be his last game in charge of the club.
He also wishes that his club pip the Spanish side to the Europa League trophy and also wished Paulo Dybala a quick recovery ahead of the final.
“As a Romanista I hope that Roma can win. It’s a one-off game, anything can happen but I hope Mourinho can win his second consecutive trophy.”
Dybala has been battling with an injury that’s threatening his place in Budapest but Totti hopes that he makes it.
“Dybala? I hope he can reach the final in good condition, because Roma needs him to try to win their second European trophy.”
“He deserves to play this game. I know he will do anything to be there, at least from the bench.”
Totti won five titles with his boyhood club with whom he played all of his professional football with.
