Totti confirms retirement to take Roma role

Rome (AFP) – Roma legend Francesco Totti confirmed his retirement on Monday and will take a directorship role at the Serie A club.

The 40-year-old played his final game for Roma in May after 24 years with the capital-city side.

He had been linked with a possible move to either Japan or Major League Soccer, but wrote on Facebook: “The first part of my life as a football player is over and now another more important one is about to begin.”
