Injured Roma captain Francesco Totti expects to return to action later this month - but has warned he cannot be the answer to all of Roma's problems.
The 32-year-old has been out since before the winter break with a muscular injury but returned to light training on Monday.
Roma suffered a miserable start to the season and, though they improved before the winter break, a haul of just one point from their last two matches has left them languishing in mid-table.
"I closed 2008 with a muscle injury, but as I have said I'm doing everything I can to recover as soon as possible," Totti wrote in Corriere dello Sport.
"I'm starting a recovery programme on the field. I'll put myself at the disposal of the team when I'm completely recovered and it will be up to the coach to decide how I'm used.
"I hope to be on the field on the 25th, but I don't want to create the same hype about my recovery as happened with my knee, nor do I want people to pin their hopes on me."
Totti endured a lengthy lay-off last year after injuring his knee in April and has appeared in just three Serie A games this season.
Roma resume their Champions League campaign on February 24 against Arsenal.
