Totti, aged 40, was substituted on in the 54th minute and captained his side to victory one more time, before bidding farewell to the fans in an emotionally charged send-off.

Essien told asroma.com:

"I know Totti long enough, I played against him at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, in a preseason game with Chelsea and more often when I defended AC Milan, to be honest, he still has all his abilities like when I first met him.

"I really admire his overall ability, he is able to perform in any difficult competition, so I want to celebrate his career."

"I hope He enjoys these days and all the honors He deserves, I will see him soon when I am in Italy again or elsewhere where we will meet."

"All the best Legend & Good luck Totti!"
