Totti considering delaying retirement

The 40-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, but he has suggested he could continue playing, insisting he is in good physical and mental shape.


Roma icon Francesco Totti has hinted he may prolong his playing career beyond this season.

Totti has spent most of his life with the club, having joined the youth system in 1989 and has been in the first-team since 1992. The attacker has gone on to become a legend for club and country, winning Serie A with Roma once and the World Cup with Italy.

At 40 years old, Totti is edging closer to the end of his career, with his contract in the Italian capital expiring at the end of the campaign.

However, he does seem open to extending his incredible career in Serie A.

“Nothing is obvious in football,” Totti told Sky.

“I was taken for finished last year, something that happens a lot in this line of work, especially when things aren’t going the right way. Everyone is free to say what they think though.

“I have faith in my head and my body, I can still give a lot and if I’m feeling good then why stop?”

Totti has scored two goals in six Serie A appearances this season.
