Is Francesco Totti set to retire? Legend says ‘this will be my last Roma shirt’

Panic set in to all Roma fans on Thursday when Francesco Totti upset the unveiling of the cub’s new 2013-14 kit to intimate that next season maybe his last year of professional football.

Asked about his thoughts on Roma’s new kit, Totti told reporters: I have worn many Roma shirts. But this is the last.

Totti’s existing deal with Roma expires on June 30, 2014. Previously the Giallorossi had said they would renew the club’s talisman deal, however as of yet no talks have been held with the most capped player in the club’s history.

Totti has played his entire career at the Stadio Olimpico, and few believe that the trequartista would ever feature for another club. In total Totti has played  678 times for Roma to-date, scoring 282 goals whilst positioning himself as the second highest goalscorer in Serie A history.

So is 36-year-old Totti set to bow out of football? A series of the best tweets on Totti’s announcement can be read below.
