Totti confirms end of Roma career, set for new challenge

Francesco Totti won the World Cup with Italy in 2006

Roma talisman Francesco Totti has confirmed that he will play his last game for the club in the Serie A clash with Genoa on Sunday.

Roma's sporting director Monchi announced earlier this month that Totti would retire at the end of the season, although the player has yet to confirm his plans. "I'm ready for a new challenge". "Ever", he acknowledged and said he is ready for "a new challenge". "Roma v Genoa, Sunday, 28 May 2017, the last time I can wear Roma's jersey".

"I can't tell you in a few words how much these colours meant, mean and will always mean to me", he emphasised.

Roma have been criticised for their handling of what has become an uncomfortable situation for them as coach Luciano Spalletti made little use of Totti this season.

Totti added that his love for football "never fades" because it is a passion. I don't imagine him going to another Italian 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. The Roma manager just happens to be on his way out at the Olimpico, and is heavily linked to Inter Milan.

The Roma captain has only made one Serie A start this season, with the other 16 of his 17 league appearances coming from the bench.

"He had the technique, the vision, he scored goals".

Radja Nainggolan also had a brief Instagram video, where Totti declared: "The best is yet to come".

In a 25-year career with Roma, one-club man Totti has won one Serie A title, in 2001, and finished runner-up eight times.
