Totti was substituted in the 39th minute of his team´s 1-1 draw at home to Livorno on Saturday night with a recurrence of a cruciate ligament problem and is set to undergo surgery at Rome´s Villa Stuart hospital.
The surgeon operating on Totti, professor Pierpaolo Mariani, expects the 31-year-old´s recovery to take five or six months although Roma´s chief medic Mario Brozzi is optimistic he will be back on the pitch in four.
