Cannavaro & Maldini Are The Best Who Ever Marked Me - Roma's Francesco Totti

Francesco Totti gave his views on a variety of topics regarding his career...

Francesco Totti is one of the symbols of Rome, and in an interview with Polis @ Tv, he provided some interesting insights and opinions regarding his playing days.

"In the future, I would like to play a match in a stadium owned by Roma, dedicated solely to football," the 2006 World Cup winner began, referring to the Giallorossi's preliminary plans to have their own stadium sometime in the future

The Roma talisman was also questioned on some of those he has faced on the field."[Fabio] Cannavaro and [Paolo] Maldini. They are two great champions," he responded, when asked who were the strongest defenders to mark him through all the football he has experienced.

Totti also ranked the referees he has encountered: "[Pierluigi] Collina was the best, while [Byron] Moreno was the worst."

Moreno was in charge of Italy's 2-1 loss to South Korea in the 2002 World Cup, sending off Francesco Totti in extra-time.

The Roma captain concluded by giving his views on the Scudetto race and the Champions League: "We'll see who wins. It is too early to make predictions."

Roma face Arsenal in London for the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 match-up next week.
