Totti to be Roma to the end

Striker Francesco Totti expects to finish his career at AS Roma after committing himself to his only club until 2014, with the promise of a back-room position when the 32-year-old decides to retire.

Francesco Totti looks set to finish his career at AS Roma after signing a contract committing himself to the only club he has ever played for until 2014, with the promise of a back-room position after the 32-year-old retires.

Wish fulfilled
"I've always dreamed I would wear this shirt for my entire career," the Giallorossi captain said. "This dream is now a reality." Roma also confirmed that Totti has been guaranteed a job on the club's technical staff after he hangs up his boots. The erstwhile Italian international made his Roma debut in 1992 and has since scored 187 goals in 430 league games for the club, making him the eighth highest scorer in Serie A history. Capped 58 times, Totti won the 2006 FIFA World Cup with Italy and has scored nine times in eleven league games this season, as well as ten in six UEFA Europa League fixtures – including qualifiers. Roma sealed progress to the round of 32 as Group E winners by beating PFC CSKA Sofia 3-0 on Wednesday.
