Retired Francesco Totti ready to begin new role in Roma management


ROME — Recently retired Roma captain Francesco Totti is ready to begin his new role working in the club’s management, without any specific role for now.

Totti tells Roma’s website, “I want to be everything and nothing. I want to be an important person for Roma, and Roma really understand that’s what I want to do.”

Totti plans to work with Roma’s new sporting director, Monchi, coach Eusebio Di Francesco and even club president James Pallotta.

Totti, who ended his 25-year playing career with his hometown club in May, says he will work with everyone “from the youth sector to the president. Then it is normal that it will take a while — six months, a year, two years, I don’t know — to truly find my real and best role.”
