Francesco Totti: Roma legend confirms retirement and becomes club director

Former Italy attacker and AS Roma legend Francesco Totti has finally confirmed his retirement as a player and announced he is to become a director of the Italian club turning down a lucrative offer from a Japanese club.

The 40-year-old, who played his final game in May after a one-club career spanning 24 years, had hinted beforehand that he could continue his playing career abroad.

But he has now released a statement saying that he has new role at the club he first joined as schoolboy.

Totti stated, "The first part of my life, as a player, has ended".

"But now I'm heading into an equally important part, hoping to do as well as I did on the field."

Congrats on your new role Francesco!.
