Totti leaves future uncertain before final match with Roma

ANDREW DAMPF, AP Sports Writer br /> ROME (AP) — Francesco Totti has finally announced that Sunday's match against Genoa will be his last with Roma after an incredible 25-season career with his hometown club. Whether the 40-year-old Totti will continue playing with another squad remains anyone's guess. The 2006 World Cup winner opened his future to questions by releasing a carefully worded statement on Thursday. 'Roma-Genoa, Sunday 28th May 2017. The last time I can wear Roma's jersey,' Totti said. 'I can't tell you in a few words how much these colors meant, mean and will always mean to me. 'I just feel that my love for football never fades; it's a passion, my passion. It's so deep I can't imagine not fueling it any longer. Ever. From Monday I'm ready to go again. I'm ready for a new challenge,' Totti added. The first part of Totti's statement inferred that it wasn't his decision to end his Roma career but that of the club, by not offering him a contract for next season. Totti has not hidden his difficult relationship with Roma coach Luciano Spalletti, who has used Totti mainly as a last-option substitute. However, Spalletti is widely expected to follow former Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini to Inter Milan; while Sassuolo coach Eusebio Di Francesco, a former teammate of Totti's, could move to Roma. The second part of Totti's statement, when he mentioned a 'new challenge,' inferred that Totti is considering ending his career with another club. Miami FC, which plays in the second-tier NASL and is managed by Totti's former teammate with the national team, Alessandro Nesta, and co-owned by Paolo Maldini — another former Italy teammate — appears to be the most attractive option. James Pallotta, Roma's American owner, has offered Totti an unspecified management position. As for Sunday, Totti is not expected to start. While the match at the Stadio Olimpico was sold out for Totti's goodbye, Roma enters the final match of the season still looking to seal second place in Serie A and a direct berth into the Champions League. Roma is one point ahead of third-place Napoli, which will play at Sampdoria. Totti has appeared in 785 matches in all competitions with Roma, third all-time in Italy for most games with a single club behind only Maldini (902 with AC Milan) and Javier Zanetti (858 with Inter Milan). Totti is also second all-time in goals scored in Serie A with 250, 24 short of the record that Silvio Piola established from 1929-54. No other active player has more than 200. But statistics don't tell the entire story for Totti, a cultural icon perhaps more linked with his club and city than any other player in Italian history. Born in the working-class San Giovanni section of Rome, Totti made his debut for Roma at the age of 16 way back in 1993. In 1998 at the age of 22, Totti became the youngest ever Serie A captain. At the 2000 European Championship, Totti's chipped 'Panenka' penalty against the Netherlands highlighted his talent and audacity. A year later, Totti led Roma to its third Serie A title and was the centerpiece of a celebration inside the Circus Maximus attended by a crowd estimated at 1 million. After a spitting incident with Denmark's Christian Poulsen at Euro 2004 slightly tarnished his image, Totti regained respect within the national team by returning from a broken leg to help Italy win the 2006 World Cup — playing with a metal rod and about 10 support screws inside his left ankle. In 2007, Totti led Serie A with a personal-high 26 goals and earned the Golden Shoe award as the top scorer in Europe. In 2015, Totti scored twice as Roma came back from two goals down to earn a draw with Lazio in the city derby, then took a selfie with Roma's fans in the background. A final highlight came in February, when Totti scored in added time to give Roma a 2-1 win over Cesena and a spot in the Italian Cup semifinals. On Sunday, Totti's career will be honored with an extensive post-match celebration at the Olimpico. Whether or not there will be more highlights next season — somewhere — remains to be seen. ___ Andrew Dampf on Twitter: .....»»

Romeo returns to lead Globalport to a crucial win over ROS

Welcome back Bro. Terrence Romeo came through in the clutch for Globalport Friday, leading the Batang Pier to a crucial 107-101 victory over defending champion Rain or Shine at the Alonte Sports Arena in Laguna. The victory, Globalport's second straight, allowed the Batang Pier to stay in the playoff race of the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup as the league's lone neon green team improved to 4-6, tied with idle Phoenix for 8th place. Down by eight with five minutes to go, 86-94, Romeo anchored a Batang Pier rally as the two-time scoring champion played in his first game back from Gilas Pilipinas. Romeo buried a three and converted on a layup as Globalport cut the lead to one, 96-97, with 2:28 left in the game. Then, after import Justine Harper finally snatched the lead thanks to a pair of free throws, Romeo scored a booming trey to give the Batang Pier a 101-97 advantage in the final 1:20. Romeo added two more free throws to his tally as Globalport managed to hold on despite losing an early 16-point advantage. The dynamic point guard out of FEU pumped a game-high 26 points of 50 percent shooting on top of five rebounds and seven assists. Harper added 19 for the Batang Pier while Stanley Pringle and Sean Anthony came up with 15 points apiece. Rain or Shine, who is holding on for dear life at 6th place with a 5-5 record, got 23 points from import Duke Crews. James Yap was also effective for the Elasto Painters as the two-time league MVP fired 22 points off the bench in a losing effort.   The scores: GLOBALPORT 107 - Romeo 26, Harper 19, Pringle 15, Anthony 15, Pessumal 9, Cortez 8, Maierhofer 3, Mamaril 2, Forrester 2, Grey 2, Paredes 0. RAIN OR SHINE 101 - Crews 23, Yap 22, Cruz 14, Chan 10, Tiu 6, Belga 4, Tolomia 3, Norwood 2, Ahanmisi 0. Quarters: 27-14, 48-44, 75-73, 107-101.   br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

San Beda remains perfect ahead of duel with DLSU

San Beda College wanted all the momentum it could get heading into the most anticipated matchup thus far in the 2017 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. The Red Lions got just that in Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as they made quick work of still luckless University of the East, 68-55. NCAA Finals MVP Arnaud Noah was a force down low with 16 points and eight rebounds, but it was the NCAA champions’ depth which again proved key in their second straight win to start the tournament. “From my 25 pooled players kasi talaga, yung mag-show up dito, yun yung magiging part sa NCAA,” coach Boyet Fernandez said. Backing up Noah was Javee Mocon who posted a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double. And proving their superior depth, a total of 14 players contributed in the scoring column for Fernandez. Next up for still spotless San Beda is UAAP champion De La Salle University on Sunday. “Sana tuloy-tuloy pa ‘to because we’re playing against La Salle,” Fernandez said. But before that, the Red Lions took care of business in this one, mostly courtesy of a 26-7 second quarter. However, the Red Warriors were able to pull within four in the middle of the third. It was at that point that San Beda pulled out the quick counter and put the game away with a 10-2 run for a 50-38 lead entering the final frame. “Credit to the boys kasi yung mentality nila, yun yung nagpanalo,” Fernandez said. Alvin Pasaol paced UE with 19 points and six rebounds. Unable to keep up with the depth of their opponents, however, they fell to 2-4. BOX SCORES SAN BEDA 68 – Noah 16, Mocon 10, Bolick 8, Potts 5, Toba 5, Oftana 5, Bahio 4, Tongco 3, Soberano 3, Presbitero 2, Cabanag 2, Carino 2, Abuda 2, Adamos 1, Doliguez 0, Carlos 0, Giussani 0, Abude 0 UE 55 – Pasaol 19, Magbuhos 9, Maloles 4, Cruz 4, Derige 4, Green G 3, Toribio 3, Manalang 2, Varilla 2, Acuno 2, Gagate 2, Conner 1, Cullar 0, Abanto 0, Armenion 0, Olayon 0, Green J 0, Magbuhos 0 QUARTER SCORES: 12-21, 38-28, 50-38, 68-55 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

Bombers take to the air once more at expense of Altas

Teytey Teodoro was not letting Jose Rizal University go through its first losing skid in the 2017 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Waxing hot from start to finish, the fourth-year gunslinger shot the Heavy Bombers over University of Perpetual Help, 70-56, at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Friday. Teodoro found his range from the get-go and torched the nets to the tune of a total of five triples. “Alam na naman talaga natin ang makukuha natin kay Teytey,” head coach Vergel Meneses expressed in his post-game conference. In all, JRU’s top gun had 19 points to go along with five assists and five rebounds. At the other end, Abdel Poutuouchi anchored a defense that suffocated their opponents into 35 percent shooting. The Cameroonian was also a monster on the glass, hauling in 16 rebounds to add to his nine points and five assists. He was at the forefront of his team’s domination on the boards, 55-38. With Teodoro and Poutuouchi leading the way, the Bombers bounced back from an 87-95 loss at the hands of Lyceum of the Philippines University last Monday. “At least, we bounced back. The effort was there this time around,” Meneses said. JRU now stands at an impressive 4-1 in the preseason. On the other hand, Perpetual was still unable to get a streak going. GJ Ylagan had 13 points to front the effort as they dropped to a 2-3 standing. BOX SCORES JRU 70 - Teodoro 19, Grospe 12, Estrella 9, Poutuouchi 9, Dela Virgen 8, Lasquety 4, Abdul Wahab 4, Sawat 4, Mendoza 1, Mate 0, Mariano 0, Bordon 0 PERPETUAL 56 - Ylagan 13, Eze 8, Dagangon 7, Singontiko 7, Coronel 6, Pido 4, Sadiwa 4, Lucente 4, Clemente 2, Mangalino 1, Yuhico 0 QUARTER SCORES: 15-8, 32-29, 51-42, 70-56 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

Laminou-less Generals send Blazers to fifth loss in a row

With its man in the middle out with an injury, Emilio Aguinaldo College used the stage on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre to showcase its newfound depth. Transferee Jerome Garcia connived with holdovers Francis Munsayac and Sydney Onwubere to show the way for the Generals against hapless College of St. Benilde, 78-70. Cameroonian Laminou sat out due to a hurting left knee, but head coach Ariel Sison still drew contributions from up and down his lineup. “Nag-step up talaga yung team para (kay Laminou),” he expressed as they improved to 2-3 in the 2017 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. Garcia scored 25 points and was on-point from the get-go as EAC’s strong 25-point first quarter granted it both the lead and the momentum it would never relinquish. Munsayac also collected 13 points and eight assists while Onwubere posted a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double to help the Generals keep their stranglehold on their opponents all game long. “Lahat kasi ng players ngayon, nag-eextra practice. Yan ang isa sa mabuting nangyayari sa amin ngaoyn,” Sison said. Clement Leutcheu did his best to take advantage of Laminou’s absence, but his 21 points and 17 rebounds were far from enough for the Blazers. Edward Dixon, with 11 points to his name, was the only other bright spot for the Taft-based team which was tagged with its fifth consecutive defeat following a tournament-opening win. BOX SCORES EAC 78 - Garcia 20, Munsayac 13, Onwubere 12, Bautista 10, Bugarin 8, Guzman 8, Diego 4, Mendoza I. 3, Pascua 0, Mendoza J. 0, Gonzales 0, Mendoza N. 0, Corilla 0, Tampoc 0, Altiche 0.

FEU bests NU in showdown of UAAP powerhouses

Ron Dennison remains the only battle-tested veteran, but Far Eastern University just proved on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre that it has all the poise and presence needed to pull out a win. Three different Tamaraws scored in a 7-0 finishing kick that turned out to be the knockout blow for an 87-77 decision against National University in a heavyweight bout that lived up to its billing. “It’s a well-played game today against a UAAP team like NU,” a more than satisfied head coach Olsen Racela said after he and his boys registered their third consecutive victory to begin the 2017 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. FEU was already nursing a 10-point lead, 81-71, inside the last three minutes before J-Jay Alejandro rallied the Bulldogs to within four points. Racela sued for time to regroup his troops who then immediately responded with a well-executed play that ended with Prince Orizu dunking the ball. “I was pretty confident na malalagpasan ng players ko yun,” Racela expressed. A layup by RJ Ramirez and a triple by Kenneth Tuffin then put the finishing touches on the Tamaraws’ big-time win. Newcomer Ramirez topped the scoring column with 15 points to go along with five assists and three steals. Team captain Dennison contributed 12 points, six assists, and five rebounds while transferee Arvin Tolentino added 12 markers of his own. For NU, Cameroonian Issa Gaye showed the way with 14 points and nine rebounds. Scoreless in the last minute and 30 seconds, however, they suffered their second setback in five games. BOX SCORES FEU 88 – Ramirez 15, Dennison 12, Tolentino 12, Cani 9, Bienes 8, Escoto 8, Orizu 8, Comboy 7, Tuffin 4, Inigo 3, Parker 2, Ebona 0, Trinidad 0, Bayquin 0 NU 77 – Gaye 14, Morido 12, Alejandro 11, Salem 11, Tibayan 9, Bartlett 4, Yu 4, Diputado 4, Aquino 2, Rangel 2, Lastimosa 2, Mosqueda 2, Abatayo 0, Galvelo 0 QUARTER SCORES: 26-26, 46-45, 67-62, 88-77 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»
