And on Tuesday, Totti was officially registered as an agent as he looks to prolong his relationship with the beautiful game.

The one-club man, who led Roma to the Serie A title in 2001, had previously been serving as a club director in the Italian capital.

However, Totti furiously resigned in 2019 after accusing chairman James Pallotta of keeping him away from Roma’s decision-making process.

And Totti will now be hoping for better fortunes as a sports agent, having been a living legend throughout his playing career.

The former striker made his Roma debut in the 1992/93 campaign at the age of 16 and quickly became a mainstay in the side.

Totti’s 25-season run saw him score 307 goals in 786 appearances for the Giallorossi.

And he led them to Serie A title glory in 2001, while also scooping two Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italias.

Totti’s greatest moment as a player arguably came when his Italy side won the 2006 World Cup in Germany, beating France on penalties in the famous final where Zinedine Zidane was sent off for head-butting Marco Materazzi.

The tournament turned out to be the last time Totti turned out for Italy.

And he retired a year later having scored nine times in 58 appearances.

Totti also won numerous personal accolades throughout his career, including two Serie A Footballer of the Year awards and the 2007 European Golden Shoe.
