Francesco Totti: Hoping to return to the Roma side against Sassuolo

The 37-year-old has been sidelined since his team's 2-0 triumph over Napoli on October 18.

A statement from Roma read: "Francesco Totti underwent tests this morning which showed the hamstring injury he suffered against Napoli is improving.

"The captain will continue physiotherapy and will be assessed again in the next 7-10 days."

Totti is expected to miss two more league games but could recover in time to play against promoted Sassuolo on November 10.

Roma, who lead the Serie A standings with a five-point advantage over Napoli and Juventus, take on bottom-side Chievo on Thursday riding a nine-match winning streak.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
