Totti agrees new five-year Roma deal

ROME - Francesco Totti has agreed a new five-year deal with AS Roma, the 32-year-old former Italy forward said on Monday. "I thank (club president) Rosella Sensi, who has believed in me (to play) for five more years," Totti was quoted as saying by newspaper La Repubblica's website. "She has extended my contract. I hope I'll always be able to give my all and come off the field with a shirt covered in sweat." Totti, a born-and-bred Roman, has only played professionally for the club he supported as a child and is adored in the Italian capital. He helped Roma win the Serie A title in 2001 and was part of Italy's 2006 World Cup-winning team.
