The wife of Roma captain Francesco Totti says he will stay in the game for another four years.

"We do get to spend time together as he almost always trains in the morning so he gets the afternoon with the family," Ilary Blasi told Italian gossip magazine Grazia.

"However, what we do miss is the time to take a break, to get away for a weekend even if that will be possible when he stops playing, probably at the age of 35."

Having announced Totti's retirement date, the mother of two also spoke of his likely plans once he does hang up his boots.

"I think he will remain in some capacity at Roma, but he tells me that he wouldn't become a Coach," she noted.
