ROMA legend Francesco Totti has taken up a new role in the game – after registering as a sports agent.
The Italy icon, 44, called time on his glittering playing career four years ago.

And on Tuesday, Totti was officially registered as an agent as he looks to prolong his relationship with the beautiful game.
The one-club man, who led Roma to the Serie A title in 2001, had previously been serving as a club director in the Italian capital.
However, Totti furiously resigned in 2019 after accusing chairman James Pallotta of keeping him away from Roma’s decision-making process.
And Totti will now be hoping for better fortunes as a sports agent, having been a living legend throughout his playing career.
The former striker made his Roma debut in the 1992/93 campaign at the age of 16 and quickly became a mainstay in the side.
Totti’s 25-season run saw him score 307 goals in 786 appearances for the Giallorossi.
And he led them to Serie A title glory in 2001, while also scooping two Coppa Italias and two Supercoppa Italias.
Totti’s greatest moment as a player arguably came when his Italy side won the 2006 World Cup in Germany, beating France on penalties in the famous final where Zinedine Zidane was sent off for head-butting Marco Materazzi.
The tournament turned out to be the last time Totti turned out for Italy.
And he retired a year later having scored nine times in 58 appearances.
Totti also won numerous personal accolades throughout his career, including two Serie A Footballer of the Year awards and the 2007 European Golden Shoe.
