ANKARA - Italian club Roma plans to honor 37-year-old legend, Francesco Totti by placing his jersey in Roma Club's museum after he ends his career.

Roma's chairman James Pallotta stated that he wishes to honor Francesco Totti who has played for the club since 1992, and he reiterated that he is a key player and good leader and "there is no doubt that Totti's jersey will be put into the club's museum." 

He added that he values dedicated career players like Totti who have played in the same team for at least 10-15 years and he noted that many Italian players in Roma such as Daniele De Rossi and Alessandro Florenzi could be the future iconic players for the club.

Having come through Roma's youth academy, classic number 10, Francesco Totti, whose contract will expire in 2016, has scored 288 goals in 652 matches for "the Yellow-Reds".
