Roma captain Francesco Totti says he was never the bookish type.

"It would have been difficult for me to go to university," Totti explained. "I have always said that if I had not made it as a footballer, I would have chosen a job for which I didn't need a degree.

"Anyway, sport has always impassioned me, therefore I would be interested in a course in sports science.

"In general, I have always found humanities, history and literature come to me easier. I have a lot of difficulty with scientific studies like maths.

"The relationship I had with my teachers was always good," Totti said. "There was always respect on my part.

"I like to cultivate other interests, but it is too soon to say what I will do well in. I now see myself more and more in the world of football, hopefully as a director figure."

Totti then revealed what he likes to do in his spare time and spoke of his wife, the Italian showgirl, Ilary Blasi.

"I like the cinema a lot. Watching a film on a big screen is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to spend an evening.

"My wife's profession has undoubtedly changed my relationship with the television. I watch it more and happily assist Ilary with her transmissions."
