Francesco Totti Given One Year Contract Extension

Roma captain Francesco Totti has signed a new one-year contract to play a 25th season with the Serie A side, the club announced on Tuesday.  Totti, who turns 40 in September, began his Serie A career with Roma in 1993, playing 601 matches for the club only surpassed in the Italian top flight by Paolo Maldini's 647 with AC Milan and Javier Zanetti's 615 for Inter Milan.

The veteran playmaker has had a tense relationship with coach Luciano Spalletti in recent times and speculation had been rife he could be leaving the club but his hopes of earning a final year's deal were boosted late in the season when he came off the bench to score crucial goals for Roma as they finished third in Serie A.

He said “I really wanted this contract, it represents the realisation of my dream,  I always wanted to end my career having only worn one shirt - the Roma one.After speaking with the president, I am even more convinced that, working together, we can achieve great things”.
