The Story of Francesco Totti Part 2

The season of 2006-2007 saw Totti score a personal best of 26 goals during a Serie A season. Not only was it his personal best, but it was also enough to make him the league’s top scorer for that season. That isn’t the whole story though. Not only did it make him the highest scorer in Serie A, but also in any european league. The award given for this acomplishment is the European Golden Shoe. This is the only year he ever won the European Golden Shoe. That year he also scored 6 goals, during the Champions League. He didn’t just score well in both these leagues, as he also helped his team make it to the quarter-finals in the Champions League and the runner-up for Serie A. On top of this, Totti won his first ever Coppa Italia with Roma that season. For his amazing acomplishments he was once again nominated for a Ballon d’or. He once again didn’t win. The 2006-2007 season, was full of acomplishments for Totti.

The 2007-2008 season saw Totti break the record for appearences for Roma. After which he still played for Roma until the end of the 2016-2017 season, so it is safe to say he blew the record out of the water.
After the failure that was the 2008-2009 season, and part of the 2009-2010 season Spalletti resigned after his four years with the team. Claudio Ranieri was their replacement.
November 30, 2009 saw Totti sign a 5 year contract extension which confirmed he would be with the until 2014. Roma gave him a salary of €8.9 million for the 2009–10 season and €8.6 million a year for the following four seasons.

The 2010-2011 season, saw Roma continue their seemingly trandition of struggling early on. Though it was still a good year for Totti as he won his first, and only Golden Foot award. On top of that, during that season Totti bcame the sixth Serie A player to ever score 200 goals. By the end of the season Roma’s ownership shifted from Rosella Sensi to Thomas DiBenedetto. This helped lead Roma to appointing Luis Enrique as their new coach.

During the 2011-2012 season, Totti became injured for a little while. By December 2011 he was fully recovered.

By the summer of 2013 Rudi Garcia became the manager of Roma. Totti was once again playing the part of a false-9/supporting forward.
For the 2013-2014 season, Totti earned 10 assists which earned him the spot of the assist leader.

During the 2015-2016 season, Totti scored his 300th career club goal overall with Roma. He also became the third all-time leader for most Serie A appearences at 592.
2016 saw Totti publically critize manager Luciano Spalletti for his lack of playing time since he recovered from injury. Transfer rumors began to emerge after this due to the fact that Luciano stopped playing him following this. This caused outrage among fans.
On May 2nd, 2016 Luciano subbed in Totti off the bench for the first time since the ordeal. He relished the opportunity by scoring off a free-kick. This was his 21st ever Serie A free-kick. This put him at 4th for all-time Serie A free-kicks scoredd.

The 2016-2017 season saw Totti tie Paolo Maldini’s record for most Serie A seasons played–25 seasons–. Following the 2016-2017 season Totti officially retired. He holds many records, has built a legacy, and did it all while never leaving his club. He is the face of team loyalty.
