Francesco Totti makes sublime assist in 600th Roma appearance

Published 1 Comments

If this is to be Francesco Totti’s final season at Roma, he’s certainly going out in style.

Last month, he came off the bench and scored twice in five minutes to secure a 3-2 win over Torino.

And on Sunday Totti produced a lovely assist in his 600th appearance for Roma as they beat Chievo 3-0.

The Italian, 39, is out of contract in the summer and it’s not clear yet whether he will be offered an extension.

But, just like Chelsea fans are pleading for John Terry to be offered a new deal, Roma supporters are desperate to see Totti stick around for at least another year.

Totti's assist

The forward has started only two league games for the Giallorossi this season, and Luciano Spalletti’s team have shown that they can get by without their captain.

Roma’s win, secured by goals from Chelsea target Radja Nainggolan, Antonio Rudiger and Miralem Pjanic, lifted them above Napoli into second place as they seek automatic qualification to the Champions League group stage.

Still, it’s nice to see that Totti can produce the goods when he’s called upon.

Game highlights

MLS links

The World Cup winner has been linked with a move to the MLS, which has become something of a retirement home for ageing stars.

Fellow Serie A icon Andrea Pirlo moved to New York City last year, and New York Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese recently admitted that the MLS club have made contact with Totti.

“We've had contact,” Savarese told Gazzetta dello Sport, per Sky Sports. “Besides, any coach in the world would be interested in a player like Totti.

“His age shouldn't be an issue, it's what he brings to the team.”

Should Roma extend Totti's contract? Let us know in the comments section below!
