Totti Rumored to Be Nearing Roma Comeback as an Executive

The relationship between Francesco Totti and Roma has visibly improved since his abrupt departure. The legendary captain has frequently attended matches at the Stadio Olimpico in the last few weeks. He could be back as a director next summer, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The former striker returned at the stadium for the Inter clash in early December after a two-year absence. He was present for most of the home games afterward. He is the global ambassador of Digitalbits, which is the Giallorossi’s main sponsor. But the team often invited him directly as well.

Totti originally left Roma in June of 2019 over disagreements about his role. The ownership and the management have completely changed since that time. There is mutual esteem between him, the Friedkin family, and José Mourinho, the publication informs. He is very beloved among the staffers at the Trigoria training center. However, he does not enter it out of courtesy when he picks up his son Cristian, who plays for the U-17 team.

The 2006 World Cup champion is currently running his CT10 Management agency. However, his desire to resume having a role at Roma is growing. If the powerbrokers made him an offer, he would seriously consider it, differently from the past.

In the meantime, the Giallorossi lost their communications advisor, veteran TV journalist Maurizio Costanzo, yesterday. He motivated the choice: “I leave because I did not really have the opportunity to do the job properly. I am absolutely a Mourinho supporter and a Roma fan.”
