Francesco Totti played his last professional match in the AS Roma jersey after a legendary career spent 25 years at the band in the capital of Italy.
Francesco Totti debuted in Rome’s T-shirt at just 16 years in a match played on March 28, 1993 and accumulated 618 matches with 250 goals scored in his 25-year-old match. The Decree of Rome also has 58 matches in the national team of Italy, for which it has scored 9 times.
In the AS Roma jersey he won the 2000-2001 Championship, twice the Italian Cup in 2007 and 2008 and two Supercupe in 2001 and 2007. In addition, Totti is also the world champion with Italy in 2006.
In the last match of the professional career Francesco Totti was introduced by Luciano Spalletti in the 54th minute of the match in the cheers of the spectators who took care to give him a retreat in a gala atmosphere.
Rome will go forward, but nothing will be the same. He served a single team for a lifetime, refused offers, money, glory from other teams, maybe bigger than Rome … but he wanted to play in a single team … and from her to retire. Such players with such characters are becoming more and more rare in today’s football, where mercenaries make the law. That’s why his retreat is a unique and sad moment at the same time … and no matter what team you like, there’s no way he can not move you. I am honored to have been contemporary and I have been able to see how it is born, how it evolves and how a true legend is retiring, serving a single team throughout his career. When you say Totti, you say ROMAntism in a pure state. Good left, legend!
