Francesco Totti accept AS Roma offer as one of the director

Sky Sports report that, Totti, 40-year-old spent his entire career with the Giallorossi, where he broke all sorts of records before leaving Stadio Olimpico at the end of his contract last month.

Totti had been considering a swansong in Japan with Tokyo Verdy, but instead decided to accept an offer from the Eternal City outfit to work as a director, officially bringing an end to his playing days.

"The first part [of my life] - being a footballer - is over and now another, equally important one as a director begins, and I hope that I will be able to what I did on the field," he told the club's official website.

"Football is my passion; it's everything. It's friendship, scoring goals, knowing new people. It's something which touched every important part of my body."

Reflecting on his final appearance for Roma, Totti said: "28 May 2017 was an historic, important day for me today. It was a day which marked me a lot. I will always remember it. It will be hard to explain to people the sensations and emotions I felt that day.

"I think it was clear that I never wanted that game, that day to end. It was too important, significant and too emotional for me.

"More than 25 years of history with Roma was within it. The football field has given me a lot and I tried to give a lot to these people, who showed me so much love day after day.

"That was my main job, while now we approach something different with the same spirit and the same mind, maybe with even more because having so much experience as a footballer, I have the chance to give a big hand.

"I start over again, on a new adventure. I've taken this time to consider it, to reflect and I needed this time to be able to join this club, step by step, with tranquility, serenity and to understand the role which I was most suited to.

"I will try to make myself fully available, from the youth academy through to the president. I expect a rosy, beautiful future. I'll pick a perfect role so that I am able to make this a great team and a great club."

I prefer to go jail instead of paying fine - Sudanese Journalist

AFP News Agency report says, an award-winning Sudanese journalist has said she will go to jail rather than pay a fine after a court convicted her of preventing a security officer from doing his job.However, Amal Habani, the winner of an Amnesty International prize for reporting on human rights in Sudan, was ordered to pay 10,000 Sudanese pounds ($1,400; £1,100) or face a jail term of four months.She told AFP News that, "This is injustice. I was covering a trial of human rights activists [in March] when the security officer beat me"."When I complained against him, he filed a case against me. I will not pay the fine but rather go to jail."Her lawyer, Ahmed Elshukri, said he would appeal against the court's order.Ms Habani writes for online Sudanese newspaper Al-Taghyeer.
