Francesco Totti offered six-year extension as Roma Director

It was inevitable. With seemingly no chance of breaking into the first eleven on a regular basis like he used to, club legend Totti has been offered a six-year contract to become the Giallorossi Director. Totti made his senior debut for the club in 1992 and had been an indispensable part of the first eleven for almost two decades. A similar thing happened 8 years back, in the year 2009, Totti confirmed that he will sign a five-year extension after which he will take up the role of the Football Director of La Maggica.

Francesco Totti: Club Legend

Francesco Totti is a club legend. He is the perfect definition of a one club man. The man revolutionised attacking football and is credited as mainstreaming the “False 9” position courtesy of his then manager, Luciano Spalletti. He is the youngest ever captain of the club and also holds the distinction of being the club’s greatest ever goalscorer. Playing for Roma, he has won Serie A in 2000/01, the Coppa Italia twice in 2006/07 and 2007/8. As an Italian national, he was a part of the 2006 World Cup winning squad and was in great form as Italy finished as the Runner-ups behind France in the Euros 2000. He is a former winner of the Golden Shoe and the Golden Foot awards. Il Gladiatore is really underestimated in some media circles but those who have seen him have never doubted his talent. He is a brilliant sportsman known for his work ethic and his overall conduct on and off the field.

In 2016 Luciano Spalletti returned as the head coach of Roma. The man is credited with being the biggest influence in the Roma legend’s career. Totti was expected to have a bigger role this season but has continued his role as the super sub from the last season. We all knew his playing career was winding down. At the ripe old age of 40 years, he has spent his entire career at Roma and has been the greatest servant of the club. Selling Francesco Totti would have been a huge mistake by the Roma Executives. So this is a smart decision on behalf of the Roma president, James Pallotta. The President refused to comment on whether Totti has been offered a contract extension as a player. He said, “We’ve not spoken [about his playing future] but Francesco has a six-year contract as a director”. Still, offering The King of Rome a chance to stay at his beloved club beyond his playing days is an opportunity that he surely won’t pass up. These are interesting developments that should end as a win-win situation for both the parties as well as the fans.
