“Hi mister, how are you?” said the former Roma captain. “I’m quite well, now that I hear you even better”, replied the national team coach
Peace made between Francesco Totti and Luciano Spalletti? Today the former Roma captain was Fiorello’s guest in the first episode of the new season of Viva Rai 2. The showman decided to call the Italy coach live.
Before going to the studio Totti had connected from the Olympic stadium where he mentioned, alone on the lawn, ‘Thank you Roma’ by Venditti. Then he joined Fiorello in the glass, who, having read about the opening to ‘peace’ between Totti and his former coach, called Spalletti live. The two met for a hug at the Bambin Gesù hospital, which they both attend for solidarity projects.
“Hi mister, how are you?” said Totti. “I’m quite well, now that I hear you even better,” Spalletti replied. An answer followed by long applause from those present.
Totti and Spalletti, the signs of peace
“If I met him I would greet him with affection, I would be happy. I believe there is a deep bond between us”, Totti had told Corriere della Sera in recent days. “Also because what we went through together, when he arrived from Udine, is for me, in my life, something unrepeatable. Both on the pitch and in everyday life. I went out once or twice a week with him for dinner. Luciano was a person pleasant, funny, sincere. In the final phase our relationship was conditioned from the outside, especially by the company’s managers or consultants, and we no longer understood each other. I too made mistakes, God forbid. I believe that both of us, If we went back, we would no longer be in conflict.”
Spalletti’s response arrived shortly. “There was certainly a period in which I wasn’t able to make him understand that I never stopped hugging him… that I always wanted him with me…”, said the national team coach. The opportunity for a handshake and a hug will arrive in a few days: “Before the next match at the Olimpico (against North Macedonia on November 17th ed.) I will go to visit some friends we have in common at the Bambin Gesù, it could be a nice opportunity to visit him together”, added Spalletti.
