Francesco Totti will play his final game for Roma this weekend

The club legend brings the curtain down on his 25-year spell with the Giallorossi against Genoa on Sunday.

FRANCESCO TOTTI IS set to end his 25-year career with AS Roma on Sunday.

The 40-year-old legend, who made his first team debut back in 1992, has confirmed that he will play his final game for the club in this weekend’s Serie A meeting with Genoa at the Olympic Stadium.

The Giallorossi, second in Serie A behind champions Juventus, need to win to make sure they clinch runner-up spot as Napoli are just a point behind.

Roma have not offered Totti a new contract and, in a statement released on Twitter today, he suggested that he may not retire — saying he wants a “new challenge”.

“Roma-Genoa, Sunday 28 May 2017, the last time I can wear Roma’s jersey,” it reads.

“I can’t tell you in a few words how much these colours meant, mean and will always mean to me.

“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.”
