Totti backed to make comeback

A major bookmaker in Italy is offering odds on Roma legend Francesco Totti returning to a football pitch by the end of this year.

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco revealed earlier in the week that Totti formed one part of his dream front line, which also included Ryan Giggs and Gabriel Batistuta.

Calcio e Finanza believes that may be the inspiration behind Sisal Matchpoint’s decision to launch a special of 100/1 for the 40-year-old to be back playing in Serie A before 2018 is out.

The former No 10 hung up his boots at the end of last season and has gone on to become a director at Roma.

It is the second unique offering by the bookmaker, which also offered odds for fellow Giallorosso Cengiz Under to win the Ballon d’Or by 2023.
