Totti: I want to play until I am 40

The veteran says that he would love to feature for the Giallorossi as long as he is fit and healthy, and has backed Luis Enrique to deliver some silverware to the Italian capital
Francesco Totti has revealed that he wants to continue playing for Roma until he is 40.

The 35-year-old has spent his entire professional career with the Giallorossi, and despite failing to produce his best form this season, he is eager to continue representing his club.

"I still have two years left on my contract, and if I'm physically fit, I hope to still be playing until I'm 40," he told

"As long as I'm fit and am useful to the team, I'll continue to wear this shirt with pride. I believe in my ability. The important thing to do is to stay healthy, and live professionally."

Roma has endured an indifferent season since Luis Enrique took the reins last summer, but Totti is confident that the Spaniard is the right man to deliver success to the Stadio Olimpico.

"I have always said that when there are big changes, it takes a little time to find the right mix. The coach's aim is to bring a new mentality to Italy. I like his game and I'm sure that you will soon see us winning."

Roma currently sits in fifth in Serie A, four points behind city rivals Lazio, with six games left to play.
