PICTURE: Totti’s son starts training with Roma youth

Totti

The Francesco Totti dynasty continues as the Roma talisman's son, Cristian, has begun playing for the Giallorossi youth team.

Francesco Totti is one of Roma's all-time greatest players and his son may follow in his footsteps after beginning life in the youth set-up.

Cristian Totti turns nine on November 5 but he is already starting training with the Pulcini, which is the youngest level of the Roma squad.

Roma snapped up the new Totti two months ago although there was little doubt which club he would choose to play for.

This picture has been circulating of Cristian in a Roma shirt and it could be a sign of things to come.

 

 

Cristian has been at his dad's Totti Summer School in Rome and will be assisted in his development by Bruno Conti, who is in charge of Roma's youth sector.

Meanwhile Francesco Totti continues to roll back the years and remains an integral part of the Roma squad as his 38th birthday approaches.

The star, nicknamed Er Pupone, has only ever played for Roma at senior level and has made a staggering 562 appearances since 1992, scoring 235 goals.

It can be a tough for the sons of football legends, Diego Maradona's son Hugo had a journeyman playing career while Pele's son, Edinho, never quite made it in football and is currently serving a 33-year prison sentence for money laundering.
