Francesco Totti says he is “ready for a new challenge” ahead of his final appearance for Roma.

After a remarkable 25 years as part of the first-team fold in the Italian capital, an iconic figure is preparing to bid farewell.

Totti will take in his final fixture against Genoa on Sunday, with no contract extension put to the 40-year-old.

The World Cup winner does have a directorial role waiting for him at Roma, but he has hinted that he may not be ready to hang up his boots just yet.

He posted on his personal Facebook account: “I just feel that my love for football never fades: it’s a passion, my passion. It’s so deep I can’t imagine not fuelling it any longer. Ever. From Monday I’m ready to go again. I’m ready for a new challenge.”

Over the course of an illustrious career at Stadio Olimpico, Totti has taken in 785 appearances, winning the Serie A once and the Coppa Italia twice for the club.
