Francesco Totti not ready for retirement yet

Sunday, September 5, 2010

AS Roma talisman Francesco Totti is about to turn 34 but has no plans to bow out of professional football anytime soon.

Totti, who has been at the capital giants his entire career, signed a new five-year deal with Roma in November last year after which he will become a club director, but the player has yet to contemplate his retirement plans.

The Roma captain told La Repubblica: "I have never considered what I’ll do when I retire. I don’t even dream of it at night. I still feel like a football player.

"The day I realise I’m not myself anymore and can no longer do on the pitch what I can do now, then I’ll be the first to throw in the towel.

"I don’t want to end up on the bench, the kind of person who plays 10 games per season. As soon as I feel that I am no longer Totti, I’ll step aside from everything.

"Of course, I hope that doesn’t happen for a long time."
