The player will be available for Roma against Inter after joking that he would not be...
"I don't think that I am able to play against Inter," he told Sky Sport Italia during a presentation at the University of Rome on Thursday morning.
"It will certainly be a special game for the team, and for the city of Roma."
Students and fans were disappointed with his comments, believing he would not play following a recent knee problem.
But, after the conference, Totti confirmed he was fit and ready to play, much to the delight of those present.
"I am ready for the game, and I will be there on Saturday," he concluded.
Roma are four points behind Inter going into possibly the biggest games remaining in Serie A this season.
