About Francesco Totti
Francesco Totti plays forward for A.S. Roma, one of the top professional teams in Italy and Europe. He is 36 years old, one of the oldest professional soccer players that are still performing. Married to Llary Totti, and has two children. He was born in Rome, Italy. He has been playing with A.S. Roma since 1992.
The Reasons Why He Is A Role model
He is a Leader to His Teamates
Totti is and has been the captain of the team A.S. Roma for many years. He has helped new players that have entered the team. Such as Erik Lamela and Krkic Bojan. He is also the number 1 goal scorer in the club's history, and has won the major title called the Eurpean Golden Boot. To me this shows Leadership.
He Shows Loyalty to His Team
Francesco Totti is one of the few players in all of professional soccer that have played on the same professional team for all their career. He has been playing with A.S. Roma since 1993. He has received over 40 club invitations in his whole career, from teams such as Real Madrid, Juventus, F.C. Barcelona, and Chelsea. He was offered three the amount of money he was making on Roma. But he has still chosen to stay on Roma. Totti quotes, "I'll remain forever in Rome, I can't see me with a different jersey". To me this shows loyalty to his team.
Totti Shows His Determination Every Time He Is On The Field
The main reason why Totti is always so successful is because he has the most determination out of all his teammates. His determination is the reason he is the top scorer for Roma. His determination put him on the the 2006 World Cup All-Star team. He believes in himself, not afraid to take chances to the goal. His determination made him a legend never to be forgotten in Italian Football.
Why Totti is so talented
Why is Francesco Totti so special to his team? The reason why is he has overwhelming talent. He has deadly accuracy and powerful strikes with the ball. But what he has showed me about talent, is that you don't need a strong foot and amazing skill to be a good soccer player. You need to be smart, that's why more than half of his hundreds of goals are non-powerful chips in to the net.
