David Beckham says the prospect of playing alongside Francesco Totti almost convinced him to join Roma.
Sunday will mark the end of an era as Totti prepares to make his final appearance for the club in their last Serie A game against Genoa, after confirming he will leave for a "new challenge" at the end of the season.
The 40-year-old has enjoyed an iconic 25-year long career in the first-team, earning the praise of countless fellow stars.
"There was an opportunity for me to join Roma when I was in America and one of the main reasons I was very tempted was Francesco," he told Roma's website.
"To play on a team with him would have be special. It was always special when you were actually on the field against him."
