Francesco Totti has been named in Roma's travelling party to face Man Utd.
Francesco Totti has been named in Roma's travelling party for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United.
The Giallorossi skipper has been suffering with a sciatic nerve problem but Roma's medical staff have deemed him fit enough to travel with his team-mates ahead of Tuesday's game at Old Trafford.
The injury had been problematic enough to prevent Totti from participating in Roma's 2-0 win over Catania on Saturday, even if the club were always confident of his fitness for the European clash.
Coach Luciano Spalletti rested a number of players in the game that was played behind closed doors in order to keep his squad fresh as they aim to protect a 2-1 lead from the first leg at Stadio Olimpico.
Now Roma's hopes of securing a place in the semi-finals have been given a boost by the confirmation that Totti will travel to England to lead the Serie A side at Old Trafford.
