With their iconic player aged 39 nearing the end of his contract, the question is whether he should be given another contract or be released by the club?

Francesco Totti’s 23 year long career appears to finally be on the brink of finalizing as the Italian player has recently been dealing with injuries which has kept him out of the playing grounds for over 3 months.
The veteran player is now fully recovered and he is ready to get back into the pitch but according to his wife, IlaryBlasi stated that Totti’s career is almost reaching it’s end.
Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard believes that Jose Mourinho has not lost the dressing room despite rumours about a mutiny.
A few months ago, Rudi Garcia’s position at Roma was under major speculation after the team made a poor start to the Italian Serie A.
The team was going through an inconsistent run of form, but it has been overcome in the last couple of matches. Roma made it four wins on the bounce and have moved to the top of the table. It is mightily impressive considering that Roma have been able to achieve this upturn in form without their legend, Francesco Totti. The forward has been nursing a thigh injury that he picked up last month.
In the previous season of the Premier League, West Bromwich Albion managed to avoid the relegation zone by 3 points.
This season was very intense for Tony Pullis and his players as they just barely managed to stay safe by a few points, now in this season things are going slightly better as West Bromwich Albion is positioned in the 13th spot and are not as worried about being relegated as they used to be in their last campaign.
