Totti offered a six-year contract as club director
AS Roma legend Francesco Totti has been offered a new six year contract by the club as a director, according to ESPN. Club president James Palotta has come out stated that Totti has the option to become the club director if and when he retires. However, he is not sure whether the 40-year-old will be playing next term or not. Totti was given a one-year contract extension at the end of last season but his future remains uncertain after being used in a backup role this time around.
Pallota in a recent interview for Gazzetta dello Sport said –
"We've not spoken [about his playing future] but Francesco has a six-year contract as a director. Our objective now is to qualify for the Champions League, even if the season's not over yet because [league leaders] Juve still have to play Napoli so I'm hoping for a draw in that game. We've just got to think about this now, not about contracts. I'm confident we can finish second. The Champions League is where this club belong. We've slowed down a bit, but I think we'll pick up the pace again towards the end."
