Francesco Totti on Monday confirmed that he would continue at Romas as a director.
The 40-year-old left the Giallorrossi at the end of the 2016/2017 season, after spending his entire playing career at the club.
“The first part of my life as football player is finished, now a second part begins as director, and I am hoping to do well as on the pitch. Now begins a new phase and a new adventure.” Totti told Roma TV.
“It will take time, step by step, to understand the role most suitable for me, and I will try to help all, from the youth team to the chairman. I don’t know how long it will take.
“There are people who think about their new role outside the field while they play; until 28 May I thought only about the field.
“Now I have the opportunity to work with AS Roma, with the sports director Monchi, the president [James] Pallotta and the coach [Eusebio] Di Francesco. I am lucky to know this club so well, I just have to understand what I want to do, and find the right role.
“At the moment I want to be everything and anything, an important character for Roma. I think that my future will be beautiful, I will choose a perfect role for me. Di Francesco? I have a great relationship with him”.
