Today's best quote

Apropos the 'broken down relationship' between Totti and Spalletti. It was alluded to in the Gazzetta article linked to on here three days ago about Totti's contract, but that aspect of the story was duly ignored by me for the sheer ridiculousness of the notion.

"Totti is the cream of the crop among the footballers I have worked with in my career, up until now. I have a great rapport with him and great appreciation, both for what I experience myself and for what I read. I also have his number. I can call him. You can't, you only report what someone else tells you".

Did everyone in the Italian media listen to this? Did everyone in the Italian media understand this? No? Didn't think so.
