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.”
