    Now 34, Francesco Totti has been with AS Roma since he was a teenager. Many feel Totti is one of the most talented to ever play the game, even though his accolades may not suggest it. With the ability to play a number of positions, Totti helped Roma win the 2001 Scudetto and has kept the club knocking on the door of northern sides Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus for years.
