  • New Inter coach Antonio Conte

"The club is extremely disappointed to learn that Francesco Totti has announced that he has made a decision to leave the club and not take up the position of technical director of Roma", the statement read.

The 2006 FIFA World Cup victor went on to assume a role on the club's board before being offered a role as a technical director last month by President James Pallotta.

Sport reported that Totti's relationship with club president James Pallotta had deteriorated in recent weeks even after the former star was offered the role of technical director.

"It is a day I hoped would never come".

"I never had the chance to express myself".

He added: "This is far worse than retiring as a player. It would have been better to die", Totti told reporters.

The 42-year-old addressed the media on Monday afternoon in an 85-minute press conference where he explained why he had made a decision to bring to an end his 30-year relationship with the club.

"Presidents come and go, coaches come and go, players come and go". It's all fantasy, ' Totti said.

However, the club legend has rejected what he deems as a gesture, claiming his influence, along with Danielle de Rossi - has been disrespected by the club's hierarchy. "Now they achieved what they wanted", Totti said. "I don't know what his objectives or evaluations were, just that Sarri was a favourite of Baldini", Totti added.

Raonic has been on cruise control in the tournament and has been broken just once, in the first round against Alexei Popyrin. He grabbed his only break chance to win the first set and his big serve never allowed Kudla any chance to break back.

To demonstrate this commitment to Francesco, the role of technical director was offered to him - a role that we believed he could grow into and one in which we offered to support him in while he adapts. "That's the case anywhere".

"Right now, I'm feeling sad, Totti can't stay away from Roma".

"In two years I've taken part in about 10 meetings".

Roma officially appointed former Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca last week, leading Totti to accuse the club of never consulting him on key decisions.

The 58-time capped Italy worldwide went on to criticise the club's current consultant and the American owners, whom he believes has caused divisions in the side that finished sixth in the league and missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification last season.

"In the first year, that can happen".

"I will now take other paths".

Roma's greatest ever player took on a role upstairs after hanging up his boots in 2017 but it has not gone to plan and in a press conference today, "Il Capitano" slammed management within the club. "But in the end they weren't kept".

"There were a lot of promises made", he said.
