Roma President Rosella Sensi: I Don’t Understand Why Francesco Totti Was Sent Off Against Lecce

Rosella Sensi gave her backing to Francesco Totti after the captain saw red during Roma’s win over Lecce.
After watching her Roma side return to winning ways with a much needed morale boosting victory at home, president Rosella Sensi commented on a strange incident which saw captain Francesco Totti sent off alongside Lecce’s Ruben Olivera.

“It was a good result played with the right attitude,” Sensi declared to RaiRadio.

“Hats off also to our friends Lecce, who played a good game making for entertaining viewing.

The patron was then asked for her take on the refereeing after Francesco Totti was shown red in controversial circumstances.

“The referee? I have no complaints but I cannot understand why Totti was sent off.

“I hope with television evidence he can be cleared of any wrongdoing.

“I would be sad for Francesco [Totti] to miss the derby because he is our captain and a reference point. I understand his reaction and given he is usually a calm person I don’t think there was any malice in his outburst.”
