Francesco Totti confirms he's taking Roma office job

Francesco Totti was given an emotional farewell after his last game for Roma in May

"Ultimately he was unable to get his family's blessing", Verdy president Hideaki Hanyu told Japan's Nikkan Sports newspaper, claiming Totti's celebrity wife Ilary Blasi had been a major factor in the collapse of its ambitious pursuit of the 40-year-old World Cup victor. "It's something which touched every important part of my body".

Already synonymous with the club, Totti described the job as the "perfect role" for him. "It was a day which marked me a lot".

And the fairytale will continue beyond as a passionate Totti told the club's website he hopes to serve them as well off it as he did on it.

The 40-year-old, who represented the Giallorossi for 24 years, played his last game for the Serie A club in May but his status since had been uncertain as he fielded offers.

"Until May 28 I only thought about playing football, having fun and making a significant contribution to the team".

The former Italy global confirmed he had played his last game for Roma in the season finale against Genoa, although he stopped short of calling time on his playing career in an emotional statement to his supporters. It will be hard to explain to people the feelings and emotions I felt that day.

"I'm starting from the beginning, it's a new phase and a new adventure is beginning".

"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".

It's been 25 years and more of a handsome relationship with Roma.

'For this reason, I'm putting myself at the disposal of this club, from the young players to the President. "I'll pick a ideal role so that I am able to make this a great team and a great club". I expect a rosy, handsome future.
