Time Out

Totti injured

ROME: AS Roma captain Francesco Totti will be out for up to two weeks after suffering a knee injury during Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Napoli. Totti scored both goals to reach 184 Serie A strikes and join former Argentina striker Gabriel Batistuta, who played alongside Totti in Roma’s 2001 title winning team, in eighth place on the all-time top Serie A scorers list. Totti, 33, hurt the same knee on which he has had surgery. He underwent scans after the match, but those revealed no serious damage. — AFP
