Totti hinted that he will continue his playing career and Zeman, who had two spells in charge of Roma between 1997-99 and 2012-13, feels he would have preferred to prolong his stint with the Giallorossi.

The brilliant midfielder made an emotional post on his Facebook account to announce he was looking for a new challenge next season. Ever. From Monday I'm ready for a fresh start.

"Roma-Genoa, Sunday 28 May 2017, the last time I can wear Roma's jersey", it reads.

Until today, Totti had refused to confirm or deny his plans for the future, although Roma officials had said he would not be offered another contract after this season. I know what Francesco has given Roma - he carried them on his shoulders.

Known by some as Il Bimbo d'Oro or "The Golden Boy" Totti has made 785 appearances for Roma, scoring 307 goals in the process, making him the second highest Serie A goal scorer in history, behind Silvio Piola, with 248 of his efforts coming in the Italian top flight. "I'm ready for a new challenge", he said, adding that football was a passion he needed to fuel. "It's my passion and it is so deep that I can't think of ending it, never".

On Wednesday, former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who would also have been a one-club man if not for his brief stint with the LA Galaxy, paid tribute to Totti in an interview with Roma TV.

The former Italy worldwide, who was capped 58 times, has won one Serie A title and two Italian cups with the Giallorossi, as well as lifting the World Cup with his country in 2006.

Whether or not there will be more highlights next season — somewhere — remains to be seen.
