Totti considering Samp and Fiorentina

Reports are growing that Sampdoria offered Francesco Totti a directorial role after he quit Roma with a fiery Press conference, but Fiorentina are also an option.

The former captain had been proposed the role of technical director at the Stadio Olimpico, but turned it down, insisting he had been ignored and shoved aside by consultant Franco Baldini and President James Pallotta for two years.

“At this moment, there are many things I can do. I am evaluating, calmly, all the offers on the table and the one that makes me feel happiest, I’ll give it my all from the heart,” said Totti today.

“I am not here to point the blame towards one or the other. We had started a journey, it was not respected, so I am moving on.

“I won’t be left unemployed. I received some offers from Italian clubs, including one this morning. I take everything into consideration, because I am free.

“Juve or Napoli, let’s not go wild here… No, out of respect for Roma, I wouldn’t do that. I mean stuff like FIFA, UEFA, etc.”

According to Sky Sport Italia, La Gazzetta dello Sport and more, the latest offer is from Sampdoria.

He would reunite with another Roma supporter in exile, because Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero is a passionate Giallorossi supporter.

He’d also find his former teammate and Coach Eusebio Di Francesco, who is set to sign a two-year contract on Thursday.

However, Gianluca Di Marzio also notes that Fiorentina could be an option, as he'd work with former teammate Vincenzo Montella and ex-Roma director Daniele Prade'.
