Giallorossi captain Totti has spent his entire 24-year career with the Serie A club and reports suggest he will hang up his boots following Sunday's match with Genoa. "I'm ready for a new challenge". From Monday, I'm ready for a fresh start. "The last time I can wear Roma's jersey", Totti said.

Until today, Totti had refused to confirm or deny his plans for the future, although Roma officials had said he would not be offered another contract after this season. It's impossible to express in so few words everything these colours represent, have represented for me and will represent to me.

A young Totti also caught the eye of Eriksson before going on to make nearly 800 appearances in all competitions, scoring more than 300 goals.
