Totti resigns as Roma director

Roma legend Francesco Totti, who played for the capital club for 24 years before retiring in 2017, announced Monday that he was resigning as director.

“At 12:41pm on June 17, 2019, I sent an email... which was for me unimaginable: I handed in my resignation,” Totti said.

“I never thought that this moment would come.”

The 42-year-old World Cup winner said his resignation was driven by his lack of inclusion in important decision-making within the club, something he blamed on Roma’s American owner James Pallotta.

“I was a weight for the club, I was told I was too cumbersome, both as a player and a leader,” said an emotional Totti.

“Now I’m leaving and it hurts.”
