NEW ROMA SPORTING director Monchi has revealed that club legend Francesco Totti will retire at the end of this season.
The 40-year-old, who made his professional debut at 16 in 1993 before going on to amass 783 appearances for the club, will become a director with the Giallorossi.
“In terms of Totti, I already knew that there was an agreement with the club that this would be his final year as a player, then he’d start as a director,” said the former Sevilla director, who was presented in his new role today.
“Francesco is Roma, I want to be as close to him as possible. I’d love to learn even one per cent of the huge amount that he knows.”
