Francesco Totti is making "encouraging" progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury but the veteran Roma captain can expect to miss another month of Serie A action.

The 37-year-old striker, who had scored three goals in eight appearances for the league leaders this term, damaged the thigh muscle during a 2-0 victory over title rivals Napoli on October 18.

He has since missed three further matches, most recently sitting out Sunday night's 1-1 draw at Torino which saw Roma miss the chance to win an 11th straight game from the start of the season.

A statement published on asroma.it on Monday read: "Francesco Totti had an ultrasound at Villa Stuart.

"The results were encouraging: the captain will continue his rehabilitation and will be assessed again in seven to 10 days."

Totti can expect to miss home games against Sassuolo and Cagliari, and a trip to Atalanta, before being considered to face Fiorentina in Rome on December 8.

He recently signed a new two-year contract to commit his future to the Stadio Olimpico until 2016, by which time he will be 39.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
