Italian side A.S. Roma have confirmed that 39-year-old attacker Francesco Totti has signed a one year extension, keeping him at the Giallorossi until the end of the 2016/17 Serie A campaign.

Having made only 2 starts in Roma’s season run-in, the 39-year-old’s future at Roma was in doubt. According to WhoScored, the club legend played only 387 minutes this season, finding the back of the net on five occasions.

According to the Guardian, club manager Luciano Spaletti was forced to deny rumours that he was involved in a bust-up with the club legend. Meanwhile, Totti was quick to play down allegations that contract talks were stalled due to the player’s high wage demands, per ESPN.

However, the announcement that he would stay at the club for another year created a buzz among the Roma faithful.

There were a few who gave us a bit to laugh about.

A European Golden Shoe in 2007 would probably be one of the greatest moments in Totti’s illustrious career, or maybe the famous night in 2001, where he won Roma the Scudetto and forever etched his name in the history books.

And finally to sum it up.
