[Francesco Totti on Steven Gerrard] I’d put him in the top three, not just in England but in the world because he’s a complete player. Would I have liked to play alongside him?” I think anyone would love to play with players of that calibre. He’s a terrific player; he’s a match-winner, so I think he’s a player any club in the world would want. Gerrard is a complete player because he can play in every position and can do everything with a football at any time in a game. He’s a player who scores goals, who builds the play, he’s a sensational player

[Roma midfielder Francesco Totti writes about an approach from AC Milan early in his career] When I was 13, there was a knock at our door. The men from AC Milan were asking me to join their football club. An opportunity to make it with a big Italian club. What would I choose? Well, it was not my decision, of course. My mamma was the boss. She still is the boss. My mother taught me a lesson that day: your home is the most important thing in life. Just a few weeks later, after being scouted at one of my youth matches, Roma made me an offer. I was going to wear the yellow and red

[Francesco Totti talks about his future] I’m thinking about my future, I’ve almost made my decision, but I’ll wait for May or June. I will never become a coach, I don’t like to be one against 30, players are so sly. I have three options for my future: to continue to play on the current pitches [as a Roma player], to become a Roma executive or quit football to do something else. But I could also become an agent, I know football, a little bit…

[Francesco Totti reveals that he has accepted a club director role after his playing career came to a close] I start over again, on a new adventure. I’ve taken this time to consider it, to reflect and I needed this time to be able to join this club, step by step, with tranquility, serenity and to understand the role which I was most suited to

I will try to make myself fully available, from the youth academy through to the president. I expect a rosy, beautiful future. I’ll pick a perfect role so that I am able to make this a great team and a great club

[Francesco Totti speaks at the Dubai International Sports Conference] Football has deeply changed between my time and now. I prefer the romantic football of before, now it is all about business. There are players like Ronaldo and Neymar, but Neymar is an example of this big price, it is too much to pay €250m for a player. This goes beyond reality. But Messi is number one, just don’t tell Cristiano!
