Roma 2001 - No.10 Totti.
Francesco Totti is the epitome of the "one club man" having notched up 21 seasons at Roma. Born and raised a Giallorossi, the current captain is considered by many diehard fans Roma's greatest player ever.
He is the number-one goalscorer, and second all-time in league history, with 228 goals and the most capped player in the club's history with over 550 appearances.
Totti began to play youth team football at the age of 8, with Fortitudo. After coming to the attention of scouts, his mother refused a lucrative offer from AC Milan to remain in his hometown, and he joined the Roma youth squad in 1989.
After three years on the youth team, Totti made his first appearance for Roma's senior side at the age of sixteen.
His primary position is that of a trequartista, though he has also been successfully utilized as a lone striker.
Often referred to as Il Re di Roma (The King of Rome), the highlight of Totti's club career is the Serie A title in 2001.
Although European success for his club eluded him, Totti was a World Cup winner in 2006. He has won many individual awards, including a record five Italian Footballer of the Year awards and two Serie A Footballer of the Year awards.
Roma recently announced that Totti had signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2016, at which time he would be 39 years old. The deal is worth €3.2 million per season and also includes a clause that will give Totti a managerial position with his hometown club once he stops playing.
