Roma great Francesco Totti: I could still play off the bench

Roma great Francesco Totti feels he could still play at the top level.

Now 43, Totti made the claim in conversation with former striker Marco di Vaio on an Italian reality TV show.

“I could still play half-an-hour and have my say on the pitch," Totti told Di Vaio.

“I would never have retired… The games are the things you miss the most. You have to reinvent yourself, start all over again.

"It's completely different being a director to a player."
