Totti confirms retirement


Francesco Totti confirmed his retirement on
Monday, the Roma legend announcing he will
take a directorship role at the Serie A club.
The 40-year-old played his final game for Roma
in May after 24 years with the capital-city side,
and decided to call it a day despite being linked
with possible moves to Japan and the United
States.

“The first part of my life as a football player is
over and now another more important one is
about to begin,” Totti wrote on his Facebook
page.
“Until May 28 I only thought about playing
football, having fun and making a significant
contribution to the team.

“Now I move on, I’m turning over a new leaf.”
Totti played 786 matches for Roma in total,
scoring a club-record 307 goals, and won the
2006 World Cup with Italy.
The former attacking midfielder will work
alongside new Roma sporting director Monchi
and recently-appointed coach Eusebio di
Francesco.

“I had 25 years and more of history with
Roma,” Totti added.
“The field of play has given me so much and I
tried to give so much to these people, who day
after day have shown me so much love.

“The beginning of a new phase, a new
adventure now starts… I want to be everything
and nothing, I want to be an important figure
for Rome and for Roma and truly understand
what I’ll do.”
