Totti is arguably Roma’s greatest player of all-time. He has the most appearances in Serie A and European competitions in Roma’s history and he is the club's all-time leading goal scorer.
It wouldn’t be absurd to say Totti’s the greatest player to ever play on a pitch in Serie A. He is the second highest goal scorer in Serie A’s history, with 230 goals in 544 appearances, He’s won the Scudetto once, Coppa Italia twice, and he won the European Golden Boot for his 26 goals during the 2006/2007 Serie A season. He was also the member of the Italian team that won the World Cup in 2006.
Roma’s No.10 had a sterling season. He played 34 games, scored 12 goals and created 12 goals. Alongside inexperienced Eric Lamela and controversial Pablo Osvaldo, the eagle-eyed Italian was Roma’s top performer, winning five Man of the Match awards. The intelligent striker completed 4.4 long balls per game, while creating 102 chances. He utilized his fancy flicks, controlled the pace of the game, and 60 percent of his shots were on target.
Totti asserted himself into the Italian national team picture with breath-taking performances early on in the 2013/2014 season. He had an assist or goal in his first seven games of the season. His best performance came against Inter Milan. Totti made Inter’s defenders look like little boys who didn’t know how to defend. With the help of Gervinho and Alessandro Florenzi, the long-time captain led his team to a 3-0 victory.
In a 2-0 victory against Napoli, Totti saw his chance of returning to the National Team disappear when he picked up a hamstring injury. Although Roma's stacked with exciting talents; they weren't the same without Totti. His team tied four and narrowly won three of seven games he missed.
His return to starting lineup has rejuvenated Roma. For the first time in 10 games they scored more than two goals in a game against Catania.
Earlier this season, Totti was rewarded for his loyalty to the club with a contract extension. He’ll lead the lines for his hometown club until he’s almost 40. Even though most players can’t play at the top level until the age of 40, you can certainly expect more thumb-sucking celebrations from Roma’s greatest of all-time.
