WATCH: Francesco Totti Has Absolutely No Time For One Journalist
When you've spent a quarter of a century in the manner Francesco Totti has just spent his last 25 years then you do not have to give a single, solitary fuck about anything. The Roma legend proved that with a brief but hilarious interview with a journalist, last year.
Back in September, Totti emerged from the bench during Roma's Serie A clash with Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico.
In truly heroic fashion, with Roma trailing 2-1 thanks to goals from Luis Muriel and Fabio Quagliarella, 'Il Gladiatore' reversed the 'Giallorossi's' fortunes by laying on the equaliser for Edin Dzeko before scoring the winner from the penalty spot in the fourth minute of injury time.
The World Cup winner was walking through the mixed zone after the match and was asked for a brief chat by a journalist but he clearly couldn't be arsed asking "After 25 years what the f*ck more do I have to tell you guys?" as he walked off:

The Roma legend managed to earn himself another year on his contract towards the end of last season but it would prove to be his last playing contract with the club he has served throughout his entire career, with Roma's Sporting Director Monchi today confirming that 'Il Capitano' would be retiring at the end of the current campaign and take up a directorial role at the club.
In a presentation this afternoon, Monchi said, "In terms of Totti, I already knew that there was an agreement with the club that this would be his final year as a player, then he'd start as a director.
"Francesco is Roma, I want to be as close to him as possible. I'd love to learn even one per cent of the huge amount that he knows."
The great man will be greatly missed on the pitch, having scored 307 goals in 783 appearances during his 25 years in the Roma first team. He famously led the club to their third Serie A triumph in 2001, as well as Coppa Italias in 2007 and 2008.
Totti is the second highest goal scorer in Serie A history, having found the net 248 times in the Italian top flight, trailing only former Lazio, Torino and Juventus striker Silvio Piola.
